The Dillard University Department of Athletics has announced the winners of its 9th Annual Billy Ray Hobley Scholarship Gala. The Gala will take place on Friday, February 17, 2017 in the atrium of the Dillard Professional Schools and Sciences Building. Each year, Dillard Athletics in conjunction with the ASK Billy Ray Hobley Foundation recognizes individuals that have demonstrated a commitment to service to their community and representing the ideals the Billy Ray Hobley lived by.
Each year the event raises thousands of dollars for scholarships and serves as the kick off for the Allstate Sugar Bowl Bleu Devil Classic Weekend, featuring men’s and women’s basketball matchups against Dillard’s longtime crosstown rival, Xavier University.
“The Gala is an important fundraiser for student scholarships as well as a great celebration of the legacy of one of our most notable former athletes,” stated Athletic Director Kiki Baker Barnes. “We are so proud to shine a light on these outstanding individuals who contribute so much to society and to reward some exceptional students who have shown exactly what a student-athlete should be.”
