On Saturday, June 10, Mt. Hood Community College will celebrate the life of track and field head coach Doug Bowman. The ceremony will take place at MHCC’s Earl Klapstein Stadium at 2 p.m.
Bowman passed away May 9 following a year-long battle with brain cancer. An MHCC alumnus, Bowman graduated from the college in 1975. He returned in 2012 to join the track and field team as a coach, and assumed head coaching duties at the start of
the 2014 season. Bowman also served as assistant coach for the cross-country team. Throughout his career at MHCC, he helped more than 100 student-athletes move on to four-year university track and field programs.
The celebration of life is open to the public. Bowman’s family has asked that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the MHCC Track and Field team in Doug’s name. Donations can be made here.
