The Jefferson County Commissioners Court has appointed Edreauanna Fowler to the Spindletop Center Board of Trustees. She is taking the seat left vacant after her mother, Gladdie Fowler, passed away on Dec. 4, 2020.
”We are so pleased to welcome Edreauanna Fowler to the Spindletop Center Board of Trustees,” said Holly Borel, chief executive officer of Spindletop Center.
Fowler received a Bachelor of Arts in Human Relations from The University of Oklahoma, and she earned her Master of Education in Administration from Lamar University. She began her career in education in 2011 as a tutor and facilitator for Project ReDirect in Port Arthur ISD. She later served as a chemistry teacher for Port Arthur ISD from 2012-14.
Currently, Fowler is a fifth-grade science teacher at Lakeview Elementary School in Port Arthur. During her time in this role, she was named Rookie Teacher of the Year in 2017 and Teacher of the Year in 2018. She has also served as the chair for the Lakeview Elementary School science fair since 2015 and is a member of the Science Teacher Association of Texas.
Fowler attends Antioch Missionary Baptist Church, where she has served in several roles, including as the director of youth ministry operations, the youth Sunday school superintendent and on the Scholarship Committee Board.
Her mother, Gladdie Fowler, represented Jefferson County on the Spindletop Center Board of Trustees for 35 years.
”It is both heartwarming and healing to know that Edreauanna will be carrying forward the legacy of her mother, our former Board of Trustees Chair, Gladdie Fowler,” said Borel.
