ABOUT MR BOWEN
I am in my sixth year at HSHS now and I love it, especially the students. My personal goal is Impassioned Student Involvement, and I hope to do this in class, outside of class, and in my Military Service Club.
Prior to coming to Holly Springs, I served on Active Duty in the US Army and taught college at both NCSU and Wake Tech on the Health Sciences Campus. I just from retired from the US Army this summer, with 28 years service as an Officer and 32 years total involved with the Army going all the way back to ROTC. I have served on Active Duty, in the NC National Guard, and finally in the US Army Reserve.
I have two teenage sons of my own. One has started on an Engineering Degree at NC State, having "made high school work for him" (one of my favorite sayings) - racking up a GPA over 5.4, playing soccer, football, and running track, and being in more clubs, etc. than I can count. My younger son is a High School Sophomore at another school and is also making high school "work for him" in his own way.
With two boys I have coached Youth Sports for about 28 to 30 seasons, mostly soccer (but also baseball and football, and I helped out with swim team). I have always enjoyed teaching the game, rather than just "coaching" and coaching my sons has given me two State Championships in soccer, and a first or second place finish in dozens of tournaments.
I love reading and movies (and own thousands of books, and over 1000 movies), camping and travel, and history (I was a biology and history double major at Wake Forest University) and have a better military history library than most libraries.
