While walking into the Upper School the first few days of school, Pace students likely noticed a new face at the Tanenblatt Family Front Desk. That new face is Mrs. Bowen Eagleson, the new Administrative Assistant for Student Life. Mrs. Eagleson is a North Carolina native, growing up in Winston-Salem. After finishing high school, she made the short trek to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to continue her education. At UNC, she was a Morehead-Cain Scholar and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English.

Prior to coming to Pace, Mrs. Eagleson was instrumental in the startup of the Atlanta Classical Academy, a public charter school less than a mile from Pace. Mrs. Eagleson served as the Resource Room Director for three years, and part of her job included sourcing curriculum materials and teacher supplies.

Outside of school, Mrs. Eagleson spends a lot of her time with her two daughters, Lucy (15) and McLean (13). “When I leave here I put on a different hat and start my second job as a mom,” she said. Her family enjoys traveling as well as sports. “I am a huge college basketball fan, so I look forward to going to some of the games,” she said.

Here at Pace, she is eager to start learning about the students, faculty and community. “I am really excited to follow the students on their journeys as they go through the Upper School. I look forward to getting to know all of the students – their backgrounds, stories and hopes,” said Mrs. Eagleson.
