Mr. Hobbs is a native Hoosier. Born in Kokomo, Indiana, he initially aspired to be a Harlem Globetrotter, but over time gradually shifted his ambition to the practice of law. Mr. Hobbs studied English and Greek at Wabash College, where he was a member of the service fraternity Alpha Phi Omega and captain of the rowing team. A chance encounter with a Legionary priest inspired him to change his focus from litigation to education, and in 1997 Mr. Hobbs moved to Chicago’s southwest suburbs to help found White Pines Academy (now Everest Academy). For seven years, he held positions ranging from bus driver to principal, while earning a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Lewis University. Mr. Hobbs gladly returned to Indiana as a co-founder of Sacred Heart Apostolic School, where he has taught nearly every subject. These days, he mostly teaches Greek and upper-level English.
In 2003 Mr. Hobbs married his wife Anne Marie in Rome, where they were blessed by Pope John Paul II. Mr. and Mrs. Hobbs share, among other things, a vocation to Regnum Christi, five interesting little children, a minivan, and a mortgage.
In his spare time, Mr. Hobbs enjoys shooting free throws (and wishing he were a Harlem Globetrotter) and reading the works of G.K. Chesterton. He also teaches CCD at his parish, St. John Kanty.
