Bobby Bones was honored with an honorary doctorate degree from the University of Arkansas during the All-University Commencement ceremony on Saturday (May 14) in Bud Walton Arena.
The Mountain Pine, Arkansas native launched his radio career as a teen in Central Arkansas on 105.9 KLAZ, and has long demonstrated his passion, dedication and philanthropy to his home state and the University of Arkansas.
Bones is a benefactor of The Razorback Foundation as a member of the “Cardinal and White,” the organization giving initiative to support student-athlete scholarships and other expenses. He also provides shoes and uniforms to the athletic programs at Mountain Pine High School, and awards annual scholarships to selected students.
A two-time New York Times No. 1 bestselling author, touring stand-up comedian and philanthropist along with his broadcasting accolades, Bones’ debut children’s book Stanley The Dog: The First Day of School, is set to release June 14.
