LeNees Ferguson and Troy Keith hang the Chain of Change on the Bowman campus, with student resolutions for change they want to see in their lives.

 
"I never really thought about changing anything about myself until the Associated Student Body put on this activity," said Bowman High School student Troy Keith. "This made me think about changing something,"
Bowman High School celebrated Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Friday, since his actual birthday was a school holiday.

During lunch and brunch breaks, freedom and protest music was played to set the mood for the students.
ASB students worked all week to produce the event. ASB students created posters of different people who have made a difference in United States history, and these posters were turned into a "Who Am I?" game within the classrooms.

Students were then handed strips of paper and instructed to write on the strips what they want to change about themselves. The strips of paper created a chain for the Bowman Chain of Change.

"This made me think about what I want to change about myself for the better," commented Marlina Adamson. "Seeing the chain complete really shows that mornings and afternoons can come together and we don't have that many differences. We all want to change the same types of things about ourselves."

All of the students were really taking a deeper look into themselves to find their changes. Changes ranged from graduating early, to taking better care of their body, to being more positive in general.

This was an amazing event that ASB was able to pull together.
