Roger Payne Enloe '32
Roger Enloe was a small-town Georgian when he came to Davidson in 1928, but turned into one of the foremost internationalists in our College family. Awards he received as a senior for scholarly, leadership, and sports pursuits marked his promise, but no one would have predicted his four decades in Gotham, after five years in Spain, after ten years in a Pennsylvania city pastorate.
His daily work for some 30 years was to promote, in behalf of business leaders, the potential for world stability of the United Nations. This put him in regular touch with world leaders, but he remained tuned in to the life and welfare of his North Carolina college. While directing symposia and conferences throughout this nation and traveling the world, he has also helped keep alive a special camaraderie within his Class of 1932 through his creative Class Notes in the Davidson Journal, which have reflected care, humor and sensitivity. During commutes in America's greatest metropolis, he planned ways to involve his classmates in three major reunions during their retirement years, which remain models for attendance and enthusiasm.
For your achievements, your wit, and your devotion to your college and college friends over almost seven decades, the Davidson College Alumni Association honors you, Roger P. Enloe, and presents you this Alumni Service Award on the occasion of your Sixty-fifth Reunion, April 19, 1997.
