I can't say enough good things about him. He brought me from a C to an A in one quarter by sitting down and asking me a few questions, and saw how I would excel in math. Which at that time I dreaded. With that insight that I didn't even know about myself, I went on to get an A in Cslculus and finished the AP exam in half the slotted time. I miss him, he was the best teacher I've ever had and that's saying s lot. I've had amazing teachers and mentors.
He?s passed away but I have only fond memories of Dr. Bowers. Smart, strict, passionate about your learning and the subject, loved Hawaii, Hawaiian culture and the music, and loved Punahou. I became an engineer with you guidance. I excelled in Calculus and college math because of you. Thank you...Thank you very much. Now there is much responsibility to do something amazing with this knowledge for the greater good of the world....Aloha.
Doc Bowers was by far THE BEST teacher I ever had--and I am finished with college now. :)
An admirable teacher - definitely one of Punahou's best!
The kind of teacher and person you will always remember.
Doc Bowers was one of my favorite teachers at Punahou, very inspiring, way cool!
fought in the battle of Pearl Harbor. Role model to all we hope to be in life.
