The Importance of Community Involvement

Understanding Community Needs Takes More than Rhetoric

Texans deserve good jobs, access to affordable healthcare, and great educational opportunities. It will take all of us, working together, to recover after this pandemic, not partisan rhetoric.

Representative Bowers was born and raised in Texas and understands Texas values and the needs of her community. Bowers learned the importance of community involvement at an early age, following the example of her mother, a prominent community leader in Houston and her father, a nationally recognized physician. A native Houstonian, she has resided in Rowlett with her husband MSG (ret.) John P. Bowers, Jr. and their two children for nearly 20 years and proudly calls House District 113 home.

Representative Bowers has always invested her time and energy in her community. She is a former educator and has volunteered many hours on district PTA and Band Booster executive boards within the Garland Independent School District. She was previously appointed to the Rowlett Parks and Recreation Advisory Board, where she served eight years. Representative Bowers is also Co-founder and four-time Co-chair of the Dallas Women’s March.

Representative Bowers advocates for women and children’s rights, juvenile justice issues, and is passionate about eliminating the school to prison pipeline. During the 86th Legislative Session, Bowers served on the House Committees for Corrections, Juvenile Justice & Family Issues and Local and Consent Calendars.

She is celebrated across the state for authoring House Bill 3435, which declares March 1st of every year as “Texas Girls in STEM Day”. The day is designated to highlight women in STEM, expose young girls to STEM careers, and encourages our local school districts and organizations to embrace educational programs for girls in science, engineering, technology, math and the arts.
