Known simply as Bowman, the school has become one of the jewels of continuing education in the state of California. Bowman has earned the distinction as the state’s Model Continuation School since 2001, so there was much to celebrate.
In addition to listening to speakers and enjoying food trucks, revelers enjoyed “Chocolate Bulldog Paws” made by the school’s culinary students, strolled through four different decade rooms, and enjoyed the chance to reacquaint and reminisce.
“I was genuinely astonished at the turn out of people from the years past reconnecting with one another,” said Eran Zeevi, current principal at Bowman. “The night was filled with positive vibes, laughs, memories.”
Attendees came from all across the country, including Dr. Judy Webber, who served as principal from 1981 – 1987. George Scrase, who retired from teaching at Bowman in 1997, came from Florida.
“My favorite moment was when George Scrase came to me and shared that this was one of the best nights of his life,” Zeevi said. “He had worked at Bowman from 1983-1997. It was very touching.”
