Mr. Bowie received an Excellence Merit Award for Baltimore County on behalf of the Early College Awareness program which was started 20 years ago through the Harvard Club of Maryland, to support parents and less advantaged students from middle school to prepare for college. This award is given to individuals and groups comprised of educators and community members who represent their respective counties for their notable services to advance both personal and academic achievement among minority, low socioeconomic, and disabled students. These individuals and groups are recognized for their demonstrated dedication to children. The Early College Awareness program has been adopted by the Harvard Alumni Association and has expanded in over ten states by local Harvard Clubs to support the less advantaged students in their own cities and locations. In his spare time Mr. Bowie is a playwright and poet. Eight of his plays have been performed in Baltimore theaters. His most recent poems, Sonnet Cycle, consisting of 52 sonnets written one a week for a year, are posted on his personal web page, www.bowie.com.
