Meet Heath Bowman
This Monday, we would like to introduce you to SpringShire Advisory Board Member, Heath Bowman.
Heath is the president of the East Carolina University Alumni Association. His mission is to inform, involve and serve members of the ECU family throughout their lifelong relationship with the university. The ECU Alumni Association and SpringShire have formed a relationship, about which Heath comments, “We find that partnerships like this help us meet our mission to ensure that alumni and friends are well taken care of into their golden years.”
“Our association views partnerships with communities such as SpringShire as a great way to promote the outstanding quality of life that our Pirate alumni enjoy when they choose to begin their retirement years close to campus,” continues Heath.
Heath believes that the addition of SpringShire is just one example of how Greenville is becoming a retirement destination, especially for those with ties to ECU. “SpringShire will provide our alumni and friends with an option for active retirement living; one that showcases an impressive number of activities and amenities for its residents” says Heath.
As Heath entered his third year as president of the Alumni Association, he found himself engaging more and more with community partners who directly impact the experiences that alumni have while they are in Greenville. Heath notes that this engagement has translated into various volunteer leadership roles, including his role as the incoming chair of the Young Professionals of Pitt County, membership on the Uptown Greenville Board of Directors and involvement with community advocacy and advisory groups, including the SpringShire Advisory Board.
Heath is enthusiastic about being a member of the SpringShire Advisory Board. “I feel that giving my time, energy and input is a valuable way in which I can help shape the future of the city for our alumni and friends who choose to live, work and play here,” says Heath. In order for ECU to remain on an upward trajectory, Heath feels it is vitally important that Greenville continue to grow and thrive as the diverse and successful city he knows it to be – and the addition of SpringShire will help to do just that.
