Brenda Loudermilk, Barbara Bowdich, Susan Becker - Adapted PE

Three exemplary adapted physical education teachers are retiring this school year.  Their combined years of service to students is over 100 years!

Brenda Loudermilk was not only a colleague but a teacher, mentor and motivator to those she has worked with. Brenda taught at the University of New Mexico and was a professor to many she eventually worked with. Her positive attitude and willingness to work hard for students is going to be difficult to replace. Brenda served in almost every capacity on the NMAHPERD committee and helped her colleagues learn the importance of being involved in state and national organizations. She will certainly be missed. 

Barbara Bowdich was instrumental in pioneering functional physical education skills programs for high schoolers and creating a unique program for students with severe and profound disabilities. She will retire at the end of this year after a career filled with accomplishments. She will be greatly missed.

Susan Becker has been a wonderful asset to the district as an adapted physical educator. Her positive attitude and dedication to the students has truly had a positive impact. She will be surely missed.

A celebration of their contributions will be held at Garduno's at 2100 Louisiana on May 14, from 1-5 p.m.
