We had the distinct pleasure of meeting Sidney Bowen, Douglass Alumni President Elect.
Mr. Bowen graduated from Douglass High School in 1957, and has been an active alumnus ever since.
Most of you know that the Douglass Alumni are faithful supporters of all college bound seniors and financially contribute to their education. This year they are supporting 120 graduates with $500 scholarships: $60,000 in scholarships!It was ardent love of the community and fierce faith in education that drove this group to bring back Douglass High School after a 20 year vacancy. This powerful group has a threefold mission:
- Assist and encourage academic achievement.
- Help the Senior citizens of Douglass
- Enable success in the community through supporting revitalization.
Currently there are more than 400 members in 4 national chapters. What a wonderful group of people who are so willing to invest in future generations.
