Bowling is being recognized for his service in the school community and leadership in the classroom.

He has demonstrated this through his leadership efforts to improve school spirit at Batavia High School”
While at Batavia, Bowling also participated in lead and support roles in three Batavia High School musicals. He loves to work with underclassmen and mentor them in the high school experience.
Bowling is taking all honors and advance placement classes that Batavia offers. He looks forward to the challenging courses and opportunities that college will provide.
In addition to his school activities, Bowling is involved in the non-denominational high school age Christian group Young Life and its Discipleship program.
