Bobo said getting an award for something that is done out of pleasure is gratifying.

“I think this is a job that we all have a calling to do,” he said. “When you get recognized for something you do out of pleasure – when you get up in the morning, you come to work and you enjoy what you do – that is wonderful.”

Debbie McCollum, dean of the Honors Institute, quoted some of the student comments about Bobo. Those included: “He is passionate about history and he makes that passion contagious,” and, “His classes are enjoyable because he uses humor as part of his teaching method.”

Hinds President Dr. Clyde Muse noted that students must have great teachers like Bobo helping them succeed. “The same is true whether you’re teaching history, or English, or chemistry or whatever,” he said.
