State Senator Bob Hall, father of four boys and husband to Kay Hall, taught his family the importance of faith, family, and hard work. Senator Hall graduated from The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina with a degree in Electrical Engineering and received a Regular Commission as a 2nd Lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force. While a cadet at The Citadel, he received numerous awards for leadership. He was the only Air Force Cadet selected to be a Battalion Commander and was awarded the coveted Wade Hampton saber as the graduating cadet who had contributed the most to The Citadel during the four years he was a cadet Upon graduation, Bob began his active duty as a Systems Engineer, working to develop the Minuteman Missile System during the Cold War, at Norton AFB in San Bernardino, California, where he achieved the rank of Captain. After the Air Force, he worked in the Aerospace industry as a Systems Engineer and Business Development Manager. In 1982, he left the corporate world and began working as an independent proposal consultant to aerospace & defense corporations. Then in 1984, he formed his own company, Professional Proposal Management, Inc. He won election to the Texas State Senate in 2014 to begin the 84th Legislature in 2015. A compelling sense of duty, shaped by his military service, business experience, and love for his country – drives State Senator Hall to leave a legacy of a patriotic servant for his children and grandchildren. Envisioning their futures compelled him to become actively involved in the state’s political process and strongly believes it is time to stand in the gap for our children and our liberties.
