pgianakuraThis endowment was established by Catherine Gianakura Rogg to honor her father, Peter. Longing for a career as a photojournalist, Peter was unable to pursue his education due to his commitment to his father’s business, The American Café, and his family. Upon retirement from the restaurant business, Peter is very active in the LSSU Elders program and is fulfilling his intellectual curiosity and previous aspirations of a formal education through this lifelong learning program. The scholarship is to be granted annually to a student who is seeking a career in Journalism, with particular interest in being a reporter.
