Robert (Bob) McCarthy is a proud Walsh graduate of 1970, who joined the board right off the bat! His experience on the Pro-Football Hall of Fame Committee and the Shell Houston Open Committee, provided a vast array of knowledge and experience to offer on the Alumni Board. His favorite thing about Walsh is the endless supply of memories that he shared between his friends on campus. He has a never-ending list of good memories to look back on. As a member of the board, he enjoys watching the younger campus community make just as many lasting memories and connecting with younger board members to hear more about their Walsh experience. Bob is enjoying his retirement in Houston, Texas.
