Celebrating 100 Years of Oakland Technical High School
Kip Hansen Hudson ’56
Remember “Bobo,” the school mascot? Well, one time in the 10th grade, I was asked to be the person dressed as Bobo! This was a very big deal as that person’s identity was a closely guarded secret at each football game. The yell leaders arranged for me to get a pink slip to leave class for a dental appointment. Then they spirited me into a small equipment room, where I was put into costume, with pillow and stuffing and finally the paper-mache head. They led me out and I bounced around for most of the game, clicking my heels when we made a touchdown. Hot, sweaty, but a big thrill!
