Chuck Bowman Donation


Former Ponca City High School graduate and 2018 Ponca City High School Alumni Hall of Fame Inductee, Charles (Chuck) Bowman’s life is recounted in his new coffee table book, “Godly Influence On and Off the Field,” which chronicles his life in sports and as a leader in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

Mr. Bowman donated a copy of his book to each of our secondary school libraries. He also donated a copy to each of our 310 graduating seniors of the class of 2022! Mr. Bowman will return to sign copies of his book at Brace Books and More on Saturday, May 28 at 1 p.m. Mr. Bowman’s is donating his proceeds made from the event to the Po-Hi Steppers.

We hope you have the opportunity to meet and visit with this amazing former Wildcat. He is a wonderful person and loves to share about his time at Po-Hi. The book is beautiful and provides such an inspiring story to all those who read it.

Thank you for making a positive influence on the students of Ponca City High School, Mr. Bowman. Your picture hangs in the Howell Hallway, and you are a great role model for our students to aspire! #onceawildcat #alwaysawildcat
