ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

 

Today, members of the Albany ARC will be showing their appreciation for long time member Annette Bowling,  someone who helped shape their organization for what it is today.

 

Bowling has been recognized statewide for the work she has done with children and adults who have physical or mental disabilities, she has received dozens of awards over the last 40 years and today she gets to add one more. 

The Albany ARC campus will now be known as the Annette Bowling campus. Members say it will symbolize the impact she has made and continue her legacy. 

Development Director, Laura Calhoun, feels its well-deserved, she says in the span of 2 years she has grown close with Bowling. 

Her passion to help those in her community and ability to motivate others and get work done are qualities Calhoun admires.  

 


"She's my mentor, I'm amazed at all that she has done, she's here everyday, after hours, working with people with disabilities," Calhoun said. 


Bowling initially joined ARC after her son started to have health issues, since she has been a major instrument in orchestrating programs and overseeing the facility 


The ribbon cutting ceremony takes place at 5:30 today, they are also going to hold a members meeting, new membership is $25.
