Tom Rogers is one of the most powerful media and business executives in the world.
His nomination for Distinguished Alumnus by Irving Sloan and the friendship between the two men speaks volumes. From the beginning Rogers, whose father graduated from Scarsdale High School in 1943, was a leader. He understood what made SHS tick and in 1972 was elected President of his class. I don’t know whether Rogers is proud of this moment in his administration or not, but the entertainment for his senior prom was Chubby Checker.
