Bobby Boudreau (B ’51, L ’53) was a most beloved cheerleader of all things Tulane. When he received the Volunteer Alumnus award in 2009, he chose for his acceptance speech to lead the room in the Hullabaloo cheer (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vfe9QY9dgBE&feature=search).
He wore green and bled green. Even when he was wheelchair-bound, he continued to travel from Lake Charles to New Orleans and elsewhere to attend football and baseball games. When he left us on Super Bowl Sunday on February 7, 2010, a Tulane light certainly dimmed.
To honor his memory, the university has established the Bobby Boudreau Spirit Award which will be given annually at Homecoming. In addition, the victory bell will be moved from outside Fogelman Arena to the McAlister Auditorium plaza and dedicated as the Bobby Boudreau Spirit Bell.
Your help is requested in nominating an individual or organization that exemplifies the Bobby Boudreau Roll Wave Tulane Spirit. Here are the criteria for the award:
