The College of Business is saddened by the loss of Bobby Paschal Martin, who passed away on November 4, 2020. He was 87.
He is survived by his wife, Barbara: his daughter, Mary Childs: his grandson Bob Glover (Amberly): his great grandchildren, Snow, Graham, and Pierce Glover: and several very special nieces and nephews.

The 1956 Mississippi State University alumnus devoted his life and career to advancing the quality of life in North Mississippi and was an avid supporter of his alma mater. Bobby will be missed, but his True Maroon legacy will continue at MSU.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in Bobby’s name to the Tippah County TARGET Endowment Fund (www.createfoundation.com), The MSU Tippah County Scholarship Fund (www.msufoundation.com), or any worthy cause of your choice.

A five-student team from the Department of Finance and Economics has been selected as one of only five teams in the country to move on to the last round in a nationwide competition sponsored by the Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS).

The nationwide competition asks teams to evaluate a new topic each year. For this year’s topic, the competition asks teams to evaluate how “community banks are meeting the requirements of the Bank Secrecy Act and Anti-Money Laundering Act.” The student team, working with Citizens National Bank (headquartered in Meridian, MS), will await the decision from the final round of judging on June 18 to announce the top three teams. Each member of the top three teams will be awarded a scholarship and the teams will have their paper published in the annual CSBS Journal of Community Bank Case Studies.
