Major: Theater/English
Work Crew: Theater
Current Job: 2nd Lieutenant, US Military

I didn't work a single job at Wilson that I did not enjoy immensely- even scrubbing walls, toilets, and cleaning dry oatmeal out of pots. After graduating from Warren Wilson, Bobby joined the Army.


“I've been put in a position as a leader of a platoon of soldiers, as is common for a 2nd Lieutenant. It is my intention to use everything I learned at Warren Wilson to positively influence my surroundings and to use my position of authority to aid the soldiers in my command.”


“The Army may sound like a step in a different direction, but the communication skills and the leadership experience I gained at the College translates directly. Bobby plans to get his masters while in the army and afterwards go on for his PhD in English.
