Visual Arts

Art can be as expressive as braiding bracelets to painting portraits, or from creating a clay box to sketching. Art can often be challenging for people to express. This award is for those who have overcome that challenge, someone who pushes their capabilities in creative thinking, problem solving and critical thinking. As much as talent can be relevant in art, so can determination to grow, succeed, and to push one's own capabilities when faced with a challenge.

Thomas Fowler—G.P.A.

Thomas R. Fowler, affectionately known as "Tommy" Fowler, was the principal of Tigard Junior High School, which then became the original Fowler Junior High. This school was located on the property where now sits the Tigard Rite-Aid, McDonalds and Value Village. One way to recognize his dedication to the school, the students and the community is to honor those who have earned the class's highest grade point average of 4.0 cumulative G.P.A.

Bill Dolbeer—Science

Bill was a teacher at Fowler for 36 years from 1954 to 1990. He was instrumental in designing our current building and its teaching concepts. He started TAG programs for junior high students and a creative science curriculum. He invented several positive programs for recognizing student achievement. He would strive to get people to look at things from a critical standpoint, make their own conclusions and stand up for them. He shaped the thinking of many students and did the same for teachers who had the privilege of working with him. He was a life-long learner and later in life became an accomplished photographer who saw beauty through the lens of a camera. Science teachers give this award to students who exhibit the following qualities: an uncommon degree of curiosity, the ability to continuously question, and interest in exploring ideas in great depth.

Greg Brammer—Inspirational

Greg Brammer was a student at Fowler during the 1980's; he earned the respect of his peers and his teachers by his acceptance of his limitations. He did the best he could in every situation. He was a caring, sensitive, hard working young man. He lost his life in a swimming accident with a youth group the summer after he graduated from Fowler. Teachers give this award to the most inspirational students in the 8th grade. The distinctive nature of this award is to recognize students for whom learning is challenging but who give their best. Qualities found in these students include conducting themselves responsibly, showing respect towards others and showing enthusiasm toward learning. We know that Greg would be proud that we continue to look for his outstanding qualities in our students today.
