NIOP Scholarship Program Named in Honor of Albert F. Mogerley

At its 85th Annual Convention (2019), the NIOP named its scholarship program in honor of Albert F. Mogerley.  Mr. Mogerley was a mentor to many in the Oilseed Industry.  He gave selflessly to the industry through years of personal and professional dedication and leadership.  Mr. Mogerley was a postive and encouraging force in the industry. Following his death, several members of the board quickly determined that it would “fitting” to name the scholarship fund in Mr. Mogerley’s honor.  It is the organization’s goal that Mr. Mogerley’s example and legacy live on.

Two of Mr. Mogerley’s daughters, Laurie Rogers and Cheryl Moore, were in attendance at the 2019 Convention to accept a plaque and recognition of the naming of the scholarship fund for their father.
