Rogers '72 Featured in NY Times Article on Prepaying College Tuition

March 25, 2013

Fred Rogers '72, vice president and treasurer, is featured along with his son, Matthew, in a March 25 New York Times article about college tuition prepayment plans. The Private College 529 Plan allows participants to prepay tuition at private colleges and universities at today’s rates. Fred Rogers set up the plan for his granddaughter shortly after she was born. The money in the plan can be used towards tuition at one of the 273 member schools. If Rogers' granddaughter, Kyra, decides not to enroll in one of those member institutions, he can change the beneficiary to another relative or family member can use it, or he can request a refund.
