Ellen Rosenthal, HCLA Class of 2004

Hometown: East Brunswick, NJ

Lives: Indianapolis

Works: Fishers

Family: Husband Ted Logan; sons Daniel, 30, Sam, 26, and Paul, 22

Nice to know: As a student in the 1970s, Rosenthal was the first woman in the Columbia University Bartending Association. “It sometimes amazes me just how far we have come since then, and at the same time, how far we have to go.”

Biggest HCLA takeaway: “This is a rapidly evolving community, and individuals can make a difference.”

Favorite HCLA “field trip”: “Beck’s Seeds. I was astounded by Sonny Beck’s strategy for growing his business. They solve customers’ problems. They do not just sell.”

What impact has HCLA made on the community? “HCLA has created an army of people who are interested and knowledgeable about the community.”

How has HCLA changed your perspective on community leadership? “HCLA made me feel much more connected to the community because I came to know people in many different roles. It helped me act on my natural inclination to be active in the community and to be a part of working toward a future.”

Favorite Hamilton County restaurant: “The Asian Grill, Noblesville. The food is creative and delicious. It seems like a restaurant that you would find in SoHo, New York.”
