Remembering Bobby Jackson

The Bobby Jackson Scholarship Fund

The Bobby Jackson Scholarship Fund is in memorial of Rockport’s outstanding former Texas history teacher. Bobby had an exciting and contagious passion for Texas History, and was known as a teacher who came to class and acted out historical characters in costume. He was well known for his “Armadillo Gang “ field trips with his beloved students to historical sites. For 45 years, Bobby delighted more than a thousand seventh graders with his innovative impersonations of historical Texas figures. As he told a Texas Monthly reporter in 2012, “History is much more than names, dates and facts,” said Jackson. “I tell my students the definition of history is in the name itself. History is a story, or stories, of real people, places and things. It’s not necessarily the most famous and well-known people, but everybody, including the ordinary man or woman. I try to make history come alive so they will never forget it.”
