Roger Engemann, father of Susan ’93 and Carrie ’96, served on the Board for 25 years, from 1991 to 2016, generously supporting Scripps over the decades since his daughters attended. He was variously a member of the Audit, Educational Policy, Executive, Investment, and Student Affairs Committees. As the Investment Committee chair for 10 years starting in 2006, Engemann was instrumental in focusing on the importance of
diversification and asset allocation. He steered the committee to make informed decisions during the market downturn of 2008–09, keeping focus on long-term goals and adhering to the investment thesis. He also dedicated his considerable investment acumen to build the Scripps endowment through careful stewardship and superb financial judgment, advocating vigorously to gain Scripps access to top investment talent by identifying and recruiting top consultants and investment managers. Engemann also provided leadership for the Scripps Fund and capital and endowment support, including for More Scripps: The Campaign for Scripps College.
