CMR Group of Institutions | Reflections

From a guava orchard to an educational powerhouse

The CMR Group is a unique educational conglomerate consisting of K-12 schools, a number of institutions of Higher Education, a Pre-University College, various Centres of Excellence in Research, and a Private University. The CMR Jnanadhara Trust was established in 1990, as a tribute to the late Sri Chikka Muniyappa Reddy, a visionary educationalist and philanthropist who believed that every individual deserves access to a quality education. In accordance with his vision, the CMR educational institutes were founded to give every student a chance at an outstanding, value-based and well-rounded education.

To celebrate the 25 years of excellence, CMR Group of Institutions published a coffee table book to document its rich journey and story.

A trip down memory lane

We sifted through archives of old photographs and memorabilia, to design a narrative for this 25 year journey. The tone of the book is conversational, and the story is built through the perspectives of the family members.
