Casper College Instructor Named Faculty Member Of The Year

Casper College

Jared Bowden, Casper College Instructor, has been named Community College Faculty Member of the year for Wyoming. The prestigious award is given by the Wyoming Association of Community College Trustees.

Bowden has worked at Casper College since August 2004 when he was hired as a physics instructor for the college. “Casper College is blessed to have many fine faculty members on our campus, though I can think of few more impressive than Jared,” said Walter Nolte, president of Casper College.

In addition to his teaching excellence, Nolte noted that Bowden also works “to promote science in the community. He works closely with our local elementary schools and supports numerous science initiatives in the community including Science Olympiad, the Lego Robotics competition and the Natrona County School District Science Fair.”

 “I am grateful to those at Casper College who nominated me for this award,” said Bowden. “No matter if someone is faculty, staff or administration, each person is here to support the student on his or her journey. Students of all ages will someday be the cornerstones of our community, and fostering in them a love of lifelong learning is vitally important in creating a successful future,” Bowden added.

 Bowden is a two-time monthly winner of the Casper College Phi Theta Kappa chapter’s Terrific Learning Coach award; received a National Institute for Staff and Organizational Development (NISOD) Excellence award in 2011; and last year was one of two instructors who won Casper College’s top faculty award, the Rosenthal Outstanding Educator Award, for the 2012-2013 school year.

Bowden received two Bachelor of Science degrees, one in physics and the other in mathematics, from the University of Missouri, and his Master of Science degree in astronomy from the University of Minnesota.
