THE BOBBY BOUDREAU SPIRIT AWARD
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. Watch the video >>
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 is given annually at Homecoming. In addition, the victory bell has been dedicated as the Bobby Boudreau Spirit Bell.
