Bobby also holds a Masters Degree in Human Resources Management and has completed 21 hours toward an MBA. His background includes real estate sales and appraisals and restaurant ownership.

To educate the schools in SC on quality care of the athletic fields leads to a safer playing surface and higher moral for the coaches, students, and community. I would advocate setting up an STMA booth at the state and national superintendent's association meetings where I would hand out literature on the STMA, its role in school athletics, and the importance of being a member with all the education benefits free. The Directors of Facilities in SC view athletic fields as a pain in the rear end verses an opportunity to show case the different venues and improve community moral. I again would consider it an honor to serve in any capacity to help promote and grow our organization.
