Robert B. Rogow Thanked by Society for His Long Service

Article excerpt

Robert B. Rogow's leadership roles with Phi Kappa Phi span three decades. Talk about food for thought! That's one reason why he was presented with a pewter serving platter in a crab motif and an autographed copy of Louisiana chef John Folse's Encyclopedia ofCajun and Creole Cuisine as parting gifts at the end of the Convention, when Rogow rotated off the Society's board of directors.

"Bob Rogow is the consummate leader and Phi Kappa Phi member," said Society President Diane G. Smathers. "He led by example and his selflessness was inspiring."
