Years of service



Bob has been associated with Northern Arizona University for nearly 60 years, since working on his bachelor’s degree in the early fifties. He was first employed by NAU in 1967 when he also began volunteering for the NAU Foundation Board. He was elected as a member in 1977 and remained on the board until 2009. In 1967 he also became the University Advisor for the Student Traditions Organization–Chain Gang which he continued until 1984. From his involvement with the Blue Key National Honor Society and the Kappa Sigma Kappa Fraternity to his long time career with the NAU Alumni Relations and University Advancement, Bob has stayed closely tied to NAU. In fact, his 2003 Joe & Marie Rolle Spirit Award was perfectly in sync with his 1975 Homecoming Dedicatee Award and his 1952 Most Eligible Bachelor Award.  He also received the Arizona Board of Regents Award for Contributions to Higher Education in 2011, and he currently serves as an honorary member of the NAU Alumni Board of Directors and Past Presidents of the Alumni Association. Outside of NAU, Bob is active with the Epiphany Episcopal Church and the BPO Elks Lodge 499. Bob and his wife “Joy” live in Flagstaff, Arizona and have three children.
