The Alayna Bowman Memorial Scholarship Foundation and Mack Bowman, a 2015 graduate of Choctawhatchee High School, are sponsoring the school’s student section for this week’s homecoming football game.

  • Mack and the Foundation will provide FREE admission to the first 400 Choctaw students for the game on Friday at Joe Etheredge Stadium. Students must enter through the pass gate on the visitors’ side.

“Every single student deserves the opportunity to experience extracurricular activities with their peers and I’m thankful to be able to make this one free,” said Bowman, a real estate agent with ERA American Real Estate.

The Alayna Bowman Memorial Scholarship Foundation was established in 2010 to honor Bowman’s sister, Alayna, who was killed at age 16 by a drunk driver as she and Mack were arriving home. The foundation has awarded more than $85,000 in scholarships to local students.

Bowman said he hopes the free admission will allow more students to attend the game and celebrate.

“Happy homecoming and always be brave,” Bowman said, remembering his sister’s legacy. “This is in loving memory of Jenny Hamilton, Fred Pitts, Don Varner, Alayna Bowman, and all fallen Indians alike.”
