Bowen’s 20 years as area educator rewarded

He’s named assistant principal at Montross Middle School

 

Eddie Bowen grew up in Westmoreland County, graduated from Washington & Lee High School and then enrolled in Virginia Tech to become an engineer.

His determination to make a difference in the lives of young people led him to a 20-year career in education in Westmoreland County.

Bowen’s efforts as a teacher at Montross Middle School and at Washington & Lee High School, as well as his time as an assistant principal at Washington District Elementary School were rewarded last week when he returned to Montross Middle School as the assistant principal.

“It was a difficult decision to change schools,” Bowen said.  “But I feel I can have a greater impact at the middle school level.  It better aligns with my teaching experience and I have a much greater appreciation for the work our teachers do every day.”

“Being at the middle school affords me the unique position of seeing where our students are coming from and knowing where they need to be prepared to go. Education is their ticket to bigger and better things,” Bowen said.

Bowen is a 1987 graduate of W&L, where he helped found Students Against Drunk Driving and was selected to participate in Boys State and the Governor’s School. Bowen has a bachelors’ degree in history from Virginia Tech and a masters’ degree in education from Virginia Commonwealth University.

When he began his teaching career in Westmoreland County two decades ago, Montross Middle School was located in the A.T. Johnson Building, which is now used for county offices and the YMCA.

He chaired the history department at Washington & Lee for 12 years before becoming the assistant principal at Washington District Elementary in 2012.

“Washington District Elementary was a wonderful experience,” Bowen said. Still, he is excited to work with Jane Geyer, the principal of Montross Middle School.

“She is a competent and experienced administrator who truly cares about the success of her students and the academic standards of the division,” Bowen said. “I am grateful to become a part of her administrative team.”
