The Lost Colony recently hosted the National Conference on Outdoor Theatre October 16-18. An evening reception was hosted by Roanoke Island Historical Association Board and the Scott Parker Award was given to RIHA counsel, Robert Hobbs. This award is presented to an exceptional volunteer in the field of Outdoor Theatre and recognizes an individual for their extraordinary, dedicated and unpaid service to the organization.

Upon presentation of the award, RIHA CEO, Bill Coleman, said “In the non-profit world, especially Outdoor Theatre, having an attorney, counsel, an advocate that works tirelessly to support your mission and is passionate about that mission – it’s as good as gold. The Roanoke Island Historical Association, producers of The Lost Colony, have found that gold in our counsel, Robert Hobbs. Robert has been more than generous with his time, talent and treasure and more importantly, he is truly a pleasure to work with and to know”.

Robert Hobbs is a partner in the Nags Head, North Carolina office of the law firm of Hornthal, Riley, Ellis & Maland, LLP. Hobbs has served as General Counsel and member of the Board of Directors for the Roanoke Island Historical Association since 2008.
