George Durenberger '28
1972 Fr. Walter Reger Distinguished Alumnus
SJU athletic director and coach
George Durenberger had one employer throughout his professional life as a coach and athletic director: Saint John's University. While he had many outside interests, he had a passion for keeping SJU alumni in touch with their alma mater. George worked closely for decades with Fr. Walter Reger, Alumni Association secretary, and his associate, Isabelle Durenberger (George's wife), to expand the scope and services of the University Alumni Office to include volunteer opportunities, chapter activities and fund raising.
