Ralph Kavanaugh Home Team Award
Yvonne Bowman has been awarded the Ralph Kavanaugh Home Team Award for her service to the Shawnee State Athletics Department. Bowman has been an integral part of the Golden Bears program for many years and has helped the program expand into what it is today.
She has helped organize on and off campus events for the program and is visible at SSU events, in the community and among her peers. Her efforts have seen Shawnee State student-athletes connect with elderly residents of the area and helped to keep the community connected to the university.
In 2018 she was awarded the Red Cross Senior Hero award for her commitment to improving the lives and community of Scioto County, especially for her time and commitment to the Golden Bears organization.
