Distinctive Hope: Blue-Chip Experience

Members of the men’s and women’s basketball teams represented Hope at the epicenter of the business world on Wednesday, Dec. 27, with a once-in-a-lifetime chance to ring the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange. They were joined for the iconic opportunity by head coaches Greg Mitchell ’89 and Brian Morehouse ’91, and President Matthew A. Scogin ’02, the latter of whom served from 2009 to 2014 as senior vice president and chief of staff at NYSE Euronext, which ran the New York Stock Exchange. The visit was part of a five-day trip to the Big Apple that included two games in the Bronx for both teams.
