Dr. Karen Bowyer has been inspiring students at Dyersburg State Community College for 37 years. Bowyer’s passion for STEM and teaching was ignited at a young age by watching the women in her family teach and by witnessing the monumental launch of Sputnik in 1957. After spending time teaching in Cali, Colombia and Mexico City, she settled in Tennessee to continue her journey in promoting STEM education. In this episode, she shares more about her work in higher education, especially in rural communities, that has helped students to discover their potential and has created pathways to help them succeed.
