Congratulations to Dr. Bowers for all that she has accomplished! She is a truly brilliant scholar, as well as an authentic "Southern Gentlewoman".

YSU was very fortunate to have had her on faculty, and I believe that she will continue to contribute to society for a long time to come!

Ditto to the first remark...a true Southern Gentlewoman! Hardworking, brilliant, compassionate...did I say hardworking? A great honor for an amazing woman. YSU isn't the same without you, Bege!!!
