Sad Farewell - August 25, 1949 - August 17, 2014

On Sunday, August 17, the advertising community and greater Madison area lost a dear friend. Si Rogers passed away from an apparent heart attack. Si was the 2014 Silver Medalist and had served on the board several times. His great smile and sense of humor were just two of his trademarks. Donations can be made to Blessed Sacrament or Edgewood High School.
