“I really enjoyed being in a program where I was with others who were not traditional college-aged students, being around other students who were also working and completing their education like me was a unique and positive experience.

Born in 1941, Bobbie graduated high school in 1958. As a co-salutatorian of her graduating class, she earned a scholarship to Jarvis Christian College in Hawkins, Texas. Despite the scholarship, Bobbie was unable to afford the extra expenses associated with going off to college. So, she passed on the opportunity and went to work. “I always loved school,” she said. “I always wished I had gone on to college.”
