Setzer, a 12-year member of the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission, was honored during a recent commissioners meeting at the newly renamed Bobby N.

"It didn't take me long to find out we have a competent staff," he said.
...
Pechmann compared him to another state treasure, North Carolina's only native trout species: "Like the brook trout, Bobby is a native son of the mountains."
...
Honors are nothing new to Setzer, who left the Commission this spring after two six-year terms.The former football coach and athletics director at Western Carolina University is a professor emeritus in WCU's School of Technology and Applied Science.He has been recognized for his conservation work by the N.C. Bowhunters Association, the Southern Appalachian Multiple Use Council and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.Earlier this year, he was awarded the Order of the Longleaf Pine by Gov.

Wildlife Commissioner Gene Price said that Setzer deserves a more immutable tribute.

Bobby Setzer deserves something far more publicly lasting," Price said.
As a plaque set into stone was unveiled before the hatchery, Setzer proclaimed himself "overwhelmed."Accompanied by his wife, Anne, he thanked the Wildlife Commission for "a great day for me and my family."
