“My wife and I have made the decision to return to Missouri,” said Bowerman. “Our children are on their own and we both have elderly parents who need our primary focus and attention. This move will allow us to be closer to them when they need us the most.”


Reggie Bowerman has served on the Shakopee School Board for several years. He was appointed in November 2008, elected in November 2011, and re-elected in November 2015.


Bowerman and his family moved to Shakopee in 2000. Both of his children graduated from Shakopee High School. Bowerman has been involved in local educational activities for several years, including as a participant on several district task forces and committees, a volunteer for the Shakopee Citizens for Education, as well as a board member of the Shakopee Education Endowment Foundation (SEEF).


Bowerman will continue to serve as Chair for the remainder of the year, before officially stepping down in December 2019. Following Bowerman’s departure, the Shakopee School Board will discuss options and determine how to proceed.
