Arne Duncan joins pal John Rogers’ company board
October 18th, 2016
Arne Duncan, the former U.S. Secretary of Education, has joined the board of Ariel Investments, founded by his friend John Rogers Jr., who called the move “a homecoming of sorts.”
The two have known each other since their student days at the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools. “We are honored to have him join our board and look forward to reaping the benefits of his insights, perspective and experience,” Rogers said in a release.
Duncan and Rogers also count President Barack Obama as a friend. The three played basketball together–back when their knees and hips could handle it.
