Bobbie Eldridge: Richardson school liaison was beloved figure on campus
Bobbie Eldridge once said that having a day named for her at Hamilton Park Pacesetter Magnet school was her greatest honor.But the students, faculty, parents and others who knew the school's community liaison say the honor was all theirs.
"Bobbie was loved by the neighborhood parents and children and equally by the [magnet] families," said Sue Francis, former principal of the Richardson school district elementary school.
In the latter role, Mrs. Eldridge was responsible for obtaining foundation and corporate grants and sponsorships, enlisting volunteers and mentors, mediating and problem-solving, among other duties.
Mrs. Eldridge struck a deal to involve Texas Instruments in 2000 after courting the company for several years.TI employees now work with students in the classroom, serving as tutors and role models.The company also sponsors the cost of environmental camp for the fifth grade each year.
"When she approached TI about partnering ... we couldn't say no," said public affairs director Gerald Borders, calling Mrs. Eldridge a "fireball" who brought much love and energy to the school.
"No one celebrated more than Bobbie and her pool of volunteers when Hamilton Park became [a state-rated] exemplary school."
Friend and colleague Elaine Simmons said Mrs. Eldridge worked hard in the last few months to ensure that the school's success would continue.
Bobbie took advantage of every opportunity to help others," Ms. Simmons said.
Bobbie Jean Eldridge was born Sept. 23, 1945, in Sulphur Springs, Texas.
She was a member of the YWCA, a PTA life member and member of Richardson Education Association.In a 2002 Richardson Morning News feature, she said her hobbies were singing and gardening.
A wake is scheduled for 7 p.m. Monday at Evergreen Memorial Funeral Home chapel, 6449 Houston School Road in Dallas.
