Ben Davis alum gives back

Education foundation receives $200,000

(Continued)

INDIANAPOLIS —

Rogers’ business has become internationally successful. If you drive a car or truck made by any of the major automotive makers, the cooling systems in those vehicles were manufactured using equipment built by Rogers Engineering. If you put your hand in your pocket and pull out a state quarter, it was minted using a Rogers Annealing Furnace. The equipment is used not only by the U.S. Mint, but the Royal Mint in the United Kingdom.

The perpetual entrepreneur, Rogers has owned and operated several successful businesses over the years. He has designed and constructed commercial buildings, built and operated hotels and restaurants, and most recently got into agriculture, overseeing several hundred acres of farmland.

The Wayne Township Education Foundation plans to use Rogers’ $200,000 donation for years to come in its efforts to create improved learning opportunities for the district’s students.
