NCDA is sad to learn that NCDA’s 1996-97 President, JoAnn Harris Bowlsbey, has passed at her home in Maryland. Her obituary can be found here.
JoAnn was a giant in the field of career development both nationally and internationally. She was awarded the prestigious Eminent Career Award, NCDA’s highest honor, in 1999 and the Presidential Recognition Award in 2019.
Her life and work is beautifully described in this article and video tribute, "Service and Sacrificial Love: Dr. JoAnn Harris-Bowlsbey '53" (Wheaton Magazine, 2019), which includes a speech by JoAnn as she accepts her award.
For more about this important leader, see the Later Chapters interview that was conducted by Rich Feller in 2018 and a 2013 conversation with Jerry Trusty, published in NCDA's Career Convergence.
She will be truly missed.
