Bowman Alumni Association

The Bowman Alumni Association helps members expand upon the values and skills they learned as Bowman students by encouraging the advancement of a lifelong love of learning, a global perspective, and responsible citizenship. With the unique experience of learning and growing at Bowman, our alumni make a significant difference in their schools, workplaces, and communities – and they make a difference in the lives of future classes of Bowman students.

We regularly hear from Bowman alumni who want to encourage, serve, and enjoy time with fellow alumni, and the Association is here to help. Keep us updated on where you are located, how to reach you, and what you are doing. There are fellow Bowman alumni who would like to talk and learn from you – from discussing possible college choices to job options or best places to live in certain cities.

Bowman alumni have much to offer the world – and to each other!

“Exposure to a wide variety of interests, opportunities to pursue in-depth topics, learning the ‘why’ mindset, and experiencing collaboration gave me the tools to be successful.”

Tom Winget, an alumnus that is set to graduate from Ohio State with degrees in computer science and engineering attributes his success to the foundation he developed through Bowman’s individualized learning approach. Tom and a few of his academic peers were ardently moving through the math curriculum ahead of the rest, so his teacher customized lesson plans to enable their subject-area acceleration. “It created a nice collaborative and competitive environment—competitive in the motivational sense,” Tom remembers.
