Remembering Carroll Rogers, Lawton Community Foundation Trustee

carrollrogersIt is with sadness that we note the recent death of Carroll Rogers. Mr. Rogers had served as a trustee for the past four years.

Born in Erik, Okla., Mr. Rogers grew up on a ranch new Mangum. He earned his bachelor’s degree from Oklahoma State University and would go on to earn a doctorate in education from the University of Oklahoma. During his career in education, he worked as a teacher, principal superintendent and coach. He was proud to have coached the Friendship High School girls basketball team to the 1963 state championship. Mr. Rogers would go on to have a successful commercial real estate business in the Lawton and south central United States. Mr. Rogers supported several community organizations, lending his expertise and teaching experience to mentor and advise others.

On behalf of the Lawton Community Foundation, we extend our deepest sympathy to his family and friends. The family asks that donations be made to a favorite charity in Mr. Rogers’ memory.
