    Meet David Schogel: At 76, a leader in the fight to preserve NW Philly's environment
    David Schogel sat in his swiveling office chair, with his thin-framed glasses sitting on his nose, wearing a beige hat with the green letters - S. E. C. - standing out. Schogel, 76, a volunteer renaissance man, has been a familiar figure in the Germantown community since the early 1970's through social work, political campaigning, fighting for equal rights and environmental volunteerism.
