Roger Ignon ’62

Roger stepped into the breach to provide Personal Protective Equipment for health professionals during the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. Using his business acumen and ties within the Chinese business community he provided thousands of FDA Medical Grade face masks and shields for the Covid-19 unit at Torrance Community Hospital in Southern California.

Perseverance furthers.
