Why a Dr. Bob scholarship at Delta College? Although he taught at several different universities, including Cornell University, University of Montana, and Central Michigan University, Bob considered Delta College his professional home Bob started at Delta College in 1981 as director of a developmental disability program. Then in 1989 he accepted a full-time teaching position in psychology. He often said his years teaching at Delta College were the finest of his professional career. He retired from the College in 1995. The scholarship was created to give students a second chance, like the second chance Delta College gave Bob.
