The Roanoke Island Historical Association's counsel, Robert Hobbs, recently was presented the Scott Parker Award by the Southeastern Theatre Conference at the National Conference on Outdoor Theatre.

The award is presented annually to an exceptional volunteer in the field of outdoor theatre and recognizes an individual for their extraordinary, dedicated, and unpaid service to the organization.

“In the nonprofit world, especially outdoor theatre, having an attorney, counsel, an advocate that works tirelessly to support your mission and is passionate about that mission — it’s as good as gold," said Roanoke Island Historical Association CEO Bill Coleman. "The Roanoke Island Historical Association, producers of 'The Lost Colony,' have found that gold in our counsel, Robert Hobbs. Robert has been more than generous with his time, talent and treasure, and, more importantly, he is truly a pleasure to work with and to know”.

Hobbs is a partner in the Nags Head office of the law firm of Hornthal, Riley, Ellis & Maland, LLP. Hobbs has served as general counsel and a member of the Board of Directors for the Roanoke Island Historical Association since 2008.
