Bill and Loma Hobson

William “Bill” Hobson and Loma Hobson have made a gift of nearly $350,000 to Texas State University in support of the William and Loma Hobson Endowed Scholarship. The Hobsons established the endowed scholarship in 1998 to financially assist undergraduate students who have graduated high school from Edna or Sealy high schools and have been accepted to Texas State. The gift adds to the Hobsons’ legacy as Texas State Heroes.
