Letter from Sandy Rogers

Greetings, friends of PBA!

Palm Beach Atlantic University holds a special place in my heart, and I believe it also plays a uniquely significant role in the Palm Beaches. I’ve had the pleasure of witnessing our community transform over the years—the passionate, successful graduates that PBA sends into the local community plays a significant role in our success. It has been an honor to partner with PBA as a new board member to support their mission of equipping students to grow in wisdom, lead with conviction and serve God boldly. Supporting PBA has not only been an investment in the education of talented and kind students, but also an investment in the city my wife Laing and I are passionate about.

This year, I am thrilled to serve as chair of the President’s Giving Societies, and I am already anticipating an exciting season of events and fellowship. Laing and I have been so blessed by the community we’ve found through the President’s Giving Societies as we’ve gathered for retreats, special events, and spectacular PBA student performances. In addition to the meaningful times we share, together we rally behind a common cause—a quality Christ-first education for the next generation of leaders and thinkers. Being able to form relationships with PBA’s leaders, like President Schwinn, has shown Laing and me the heart behind PBA—a heart that truly desires to make our community even more vibrant. We are proud to support PBA and deeply grateful for the care we’ve been shown through the President’s Giving Societies. We invite you to learn more about this special leadership giving group.
