The entire TPQ team is saddened by the loss of Şarik Tara — a great philanthropist, entrepreneur, and visionary — who was a supporter of the journal for many years. Tara’s legacy will have a lasting impact in the fields of education, business, sports, and politics in Turkey, as well as the achievements of future generations. We reflect on both his successes and humanity and are appreciative of his many contributions to Turkish society.
