Young Alumnus Award

2014 Young Alumnus Award
Benjamin Bingle '02

After double majoring in business administration and political science at Monmouth, Bingle served two stints with AmeriCorps, working in microenterprise development for low-income, disadvantaged populations in Iowa. As an operations officer at his next position, Bingle implemented a federally-funded initiative in 45 states, helped procure more than $1.3 million in grants and other funds and traveled extensively to conduct training on effective microeconomic development. Bingle is currently working on his doctoral dissertation at Northern Illinois University, where works with the Center for Non-Governmental Organization Leadership and Development.

“Ben exemplifies the best attributes of a Monmouth College education,” said faculty member Ken McMillan. “He excels. He accomplishes. He leads. He serves. Most important, he teaches people the most fundamental precept of solid citizenship – to take charge in providing their own livelihood and to take responsibility for their own lives.”
