Dedication to Jereann Bowman
Jereann Bowman High School was founded in September 1969 by a very special woman.
Jereann Bowman was a graduate of San Fernando High School and went on from there to the University of Southern California. She has lived in California all her life, moving to Newhall in 1920.
Mrs. Bowman was very concerned with the young children and teenagers in our community. She took special interest in students who seemed to have problems fitting into a regular high school. Her father, Judge McDougall, gave her encouragement to start a special school for those younger students who needed and wanted to finish high school.
Jereann received her wish. A continuation high school was built and started. Because of her long and hard work, the Wm. S. Hart District School Board named the school after her, "Jereann BOWMAN HIGH SCHOOL."
As of October 31, 1973, Bowman had only 66 students enrolled. Now, in the year 1981, there are 253 students. We've come along way. Mrs. Bowman worked hard to start Bowman, and we'll work hard to keep it.
Thank you, Jereann, for your hard and devoted work, but mostly for your concern for the younger generation.
