"Hello Bowie Community! It is with a profound sense of joy, respect, and honor that I assume the position of principal at Bowie High School. I was born and raised in Minnesota, but am a UTEP graduate who has lived in El Paso for almost 30 years. During the 20 years I have worked for EPISD, I have always known Bowie as a school with a proud history and strong traditions. In fact, Bowie's reputation is what made me want to come to this beautiful campus as its principal. During the short time I have already spent at Bowie I have not only seen some of the proud traditions and the strong school spirit that drew me here, but I have also come to learn that Bowie is not just a community, it's a family. I hope this will be the first year of many years in which I will have the honor of leading our great school. My commitment to my new family is to carry on the strong traditions, to always keep Bowie in the limelight that it deserves, and to ensure that the latest graduates of Bowie High School have the same pride and opportunities as those graduates who came before. My priorities are to increase the opportunities student have to earn college credit at Bowie and to make sure that every students is involved in a club, sport, or organization. Busy bears are happy bears!
