Bob B.
United States
In the mid 1960's Bob became Southern Bureau Chief for CBS, and he and his young family relocated to Atlanta. From CBS, Bob went to WAGA, the Chamber of Commerce, then MARTA, and he also served for many years as president of the Atlanta Track Club. He represented MARTA at a 1988 meeting about bringing the Olympics to Atlanta. Although he had been part of an exploratory committee to do just that ten years earlier, Bob was skeptical but soon realized how serious the effort was. He became Press Chief during the Olympics and was later awarded the Olympic Order, the highest award given by the International Olympic Committee. During his retirement Bob became a master gardener and an active volunteer with the Botanical Garden, which named him 2001 Volunteer of the Year. When he realized that GSU’s 62+ program would allow him to go to school for free, he jumped at the chance to complete his degree. Although failing eyesight and an aversion to math conspired against him, with the help of GSU’s disability services, two math tutors, and dedicated faculty advisors, Bob received his B.A. in English. He began his memoir as part of his coursework. Like Bob, it promises to be fascinating.
