    The Reverend Gail Bowman will do an outstanding job at Berea College. She is the perfect fit for the college, the students, and the job. She is a spiritual teacher, scholar, mentor, and leader.

    I am glad that I once had the opportunity to work with her at Dillard University. She has now found a new way to work in campus ministry for her career.

    Rev. Bowman congratulations on your new position. It sounds like a perfect fit but when you do God’s will they’re always perfect fits. Thank you for your assistance and encouragement of my son through his brief stay at Dillard University. He is doing well and starts Americorp in July and looks forward to returning to Dillard in the summer. Berea is a great college. I have referred several students I work with at our community college to give it a serious look. Again, thanks and congratulations.
