’Berg Senior Named
Rotary Scholar

Michael J. Hogentogler ’04, a double major in business finance and communication, has been named a 2004-05 Rotary Foundation Ambassadorial Scholar. Hogentogler will pursue a master’s degree in finance at the University of Manchester, Manchester, England. The postgraduate scholarship of $25,000 will pay all tuition, room and board, books and travel expenses for one year, beginning in September 2004.

The salutatorian of the Class of 2000 at Perkiomen Valley High School, Hogentogler is the son of Mr. & Mrs. Joseph W. Hogentogler of Collegeville, Pa. At Muhlenberg, he is a Dana Scholar and a member of the Dean’s List; he has received the Kyle M. Larson Scholarship Award for Ethics in Business and Economics and maintains a 4.0 grade point average in both of his majors. Hogentogler has served internships with The Vanguard Group, Salomon Smith Barney, Klunk & Milan Advertising and the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office. An active member of the Muhlenberg community, he chairs the Anti-Bias Society and is a member of Cardinal Key Society, a student representative to the faculty committee on academic policy, an executive board member of the orientation advising and planning committee and the secretary of Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity.

Hogentogler is the second Muhlenberg student in two years to earn prestigious Rotary honors. Last year, Rebecca Eckard ’03 was named a Rotary Foundation Ambassadorial Scholar.


(L-R) President Randy Helm, Chaplain Peter Bredlau and Deb Kipp, assistant vice president of development and alumni relations, participate in the “Odyssey Marathon” hosted by President Helm’s history class, History and the Homeric Epic, in November. Members of the College community volunteered to read in half-hour time slots, reading Homer’s “Odyssey” aloud in just about 12 hours.
