The award seeks to highlight the significant contributions that women bring in manufacturing and to encourage women to pursue and develop careers in manufacturing. Bowers’s nomination was reviewed and scored by a panel of judges based on impact to the company and her peers.

Bowers is the third Strongwell team member to receive this recognition in recent years. Shelly Wiseman (Materials Manager) received this honor in 2023 and Melissa Harrison (Chief Estimator) in 2018.
