Principal's Bio

Assistant Principal for Instruction

Hello Centerville Family!

My name is Ruthann Bowden.  I am the Assistant Principal for Instruction here at Centerville and want you to know that I truly love our staff, students and parents.  I have so much Mustang Pride and hope that I show it on a daily basis. 

1978 - Graduate of John McEachern High School in Powder Springs, GA

2000 - Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education from Fort Valley State University

2007 - Master's in Reading and Literacy from Walden University

2008 - Specialist in Educational Leadership from Columbus State University


I began teaching at Miller Elementary in 2000.  I taught three years in 1st grade and my last year at Miller was in 3rd grade.  In 2004 I transfered to Russell Elementary and taught four years in 5th grade.  My final two years at Russell were spent teaching Kindergarten.  I was then hired here at Centerville Elementary as the Assistant Principal for Instruction.

I have been married to David Bowden for twenty-five years and together we have five children and three grandchildren.  We have four grown children - three are married and our youngest is a junior Veteran's High School.
