College governor makes top 100

nneka_bowenA member of Durham College’s board of governors has been named as one of the top 100 Accomplished Canadian Black Women.

Nneka Bowen received the honour at a ceremony in Brighton last month, joining 99 other women noted for “their social, educational, political and professional accomplishments,” according to a news release.

“My sons are my greatest inspirations,” Bowen states in the news release.

“Having grown up with nothing but a dream for what I wanted my future to look like, I am driven every day and with every breath to give them the life I didn’t have growing up; to live as an example for them to follow and aspire to achieve and contribute even greater than my most ambitious dreams.”

According to the news release, Bowen’s influences include Jean Augustine, the first African-Canadian woman elected to parliament, and the mentors and managers she had at RBC.
