Since retiring, Bob DeGour has become a fixture at Eastern Shore schools as not only a U.S. Naval Academy Blue & Gold Officer but also the Founder/Director of a summer STEM camp for elementary school children whose instructors are middle and high school students.
His never-tiring efforts to give back find him in and out of the schools mentoring young people and assisting with BioMed and Geopolitics courses. Since moving to the Eastern Shore, Bob has been invited to moderate the annual Naval Academy Foreign Affairs Conference roundtable on current strategic issues impacting the United States.
Bob is a 1973 U.S. Naval Academy graduate and was the first midshipman to study concurrently in a civilian university post-graduate program. His classified thesis focused on socio-political systems in Pre-WWII Germany, the Soviet Union, and the Peoples Republic of China. He served in the Navy intel community before transitioning to the private sector.
