A senior at the University of Mississippi has made Time magazine’s list of “A Generation Creating Change.”
Bobby Hudson III, a public policy leadership major from the coast, established the North Gulfport Advocacy Coalition after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020. The North Gulfport Advocacy Coalition is a grassroots organization dedicated to educating the public about politics, social advocacy, and voter awareness.
“Bobby has been blazing trails since his first year at the university,” Shawnboda Mead, vice chancellor for diversity and community engagement at Ole Miss, said. “He has proven to be a collaborative leader and role model for his peers. Bobby is also highly determined and cares deeply about engaging and improving his community.”
Inspired by the ideas of W.E.B. Du Bois, Hudson believes everyone is capable of making a change in the world.
“I believe no matter the constraints of traditional society standards, or whatever the obstacle might be before you, if you put your mind to it, nothing can stop you,” Hudson said.
