CHARLES ROBERT DEPRO
Bob Depro channeled his passion for history into a
34-year teaching career as a champion for the students of
Sikeston High School. Announcing as the “Voice of the Bulldogs”
or attending their sporting events, Depro
cheered on his beloved Bulldogs for over 50 years.
His final legacy to Sikeston Public Schools in the fall of 2017
was his gift of almost $1.8 million to the Sikeston Public Schools Foundation
to establish the Bob Depro Scholarship Fund. The purpose
of this fund is to provide college scholarships
for students graduating from Sikeston Public Schools.
This donation reflects his generous spirit. Bob Depro leaves a
remarkable footprint on our community and our school system.
Due to Mr. Depro’s generosity, the Sikeston Public Schools
Foundation is able to award scholarships to deserving students
each year. These students submitted impressive applications
which showed their dedication to academics, extracurricular activities,
and community service.
