Sylacauga City Schools is noted for its long history of dedicated teachers who not only taught, but also inspired their students to achieve great things. To continue this legacy of teaching and learning, a group of retired teachers, support staff, and administrators came together to endow a college scholarship through the Sylacauga City Schools Foundation for a future teacher.
The 2022 recipient is Miss Mackenzie Bowen, the daughter of Robert and Melissa Bowen. Mackenzie was very active during her four years at Sylacauga High School. She has taken AP/Advanced or Honor classes, successfully completed English 101 and 102 at CACC, a member of several clubs and honor societies, and a very active volunteer in the community. She will be attending Central Alabama Community College in the fall then will transfer to a four-year university majoring in Early Childhood Education.
The teaching profession is a very rewarding one met with challenges, opportunities, and successes; and this future teacher will embrace it all with inspiration and a deep understanding of the impact teachers make in shaping the lives of their students.
Congratulations to Mackenzie Bowen!
