Bowman Middle School

"Bowman spirit has grown leaps and bounds, but spirit never grows old." (Plano Star-Courier, May 14, 1969)

Bowman Middle School, built in 1968 and first opened as Bowman Junior High, was named for banker George Washington Bowman (1844-1921). A Confederate veteran, and later a farmer, Bowman was one of the organizers of the Plano National Bank in 1887 and served as president of its board until his death. He was also on the Plano city council and PISD school board. (A Century of Excellence: A History of the Plano Independent School District, 1999).

Have a great WEEK!!!
