Remembering Bob DeHoet
January 11, 2015
The University Museum sadly notes the death of Bob DeHoet, our Education Program Director. On December 18. Bob joined the Museum in 1991 as an education assistant. He became the director of the education program in 2006. Bob’s workshops have been enjoyed by several generations of area school children. He was also well known for coordinating the Museum’s annual Arts Education Festival, a program that brought close to 2,000 secondary students to campus for a full-day’s immersion into the arts. In 2010, Bob received the Pubic & Community Service Award "for dedicated service to the arts in Illinois schools" from the Illinois Alliance for Arts Education. All who had the privilege of working with him will miss Bob.
Anyone wishing to remember Bob’s many talents and kindnesses with a contribution is welcome to make a donation to the Arts Education Festival fund (#106691) at the SIU Foundation, Colyer Hall, Mail Code 6805, Carbondale, IL 62901.
