In recognition of his work and life, several of Bob’s family members and friends established and contributed to a scholarship in his name at Delta College. The Delta College Foundation Board of Directors passed the resolution endowing the Robert R. Zimmermann “Dr. Bob” Scholarship on September 21, 2011.
Journey, the Delta College publication for alumni, included this description of the scholarship in its Spring 2012 issue:
The Robert R. Zimmermann “Dr. Bob” Scholarship Endowment memorializes “Dr. Bob” — as his colleagues, students and friends knew him — who worked at Delta from 1980 until his retirement in 1995. At Delta, he directed the program for parents of children with disabilities, served as Assistant Director of Assessment Services and, from 1989 until 1995, served as Assistant Professor of Psychology. He passed away on November 3, 2009.
Dr. Stephanie Coopman, daughter of “Dr. Bob,” said her father “enjoyed his tenure at Delta College more than any other place he had been employed. After his death, our family found appointment letters and performance evaluations from Delta, but could not locate anything from any other university where he taught. He always felt Delta College gave him a second chance.”
