Honored In 2012
Jan is a long-time top biology teacher at JHS. Many of her students are now doctors and nurses. As her son Rob Gowin said when he surprised her with this designation, "There is absolutely prayer still in school – just ask any student who has been in Mrs. Gowin’s class!". She was named JISD Secondary Teacher of the Year in 2011, and JISD is so fortunate to have teachers of her quality in our schools. Mrs. Gowin certainly has been and continues to be an Influential Indian.
