Hello Sequoyah Alumni,
        I wanted to share some news and let you know that a 1984 Sequoyah grad has passed away.

      Jimmy Ray Bowman , an Army veteran and Cherokee tribal member, passed on December 6th, 2002 while living in California. 

       He is survived by his mother, Annie Sue Byrd (Sequoyah class of 57), brothers Wendell and Nathan Bowman (Sequoyah class of 1985), sister Sherri and his son Eric Bowman (now 18). 

      He attended Seneca Indian School and while at Sequoyah participated in football and was an accomplished runner who went to State competition representing Sequoyah in track in  1984.

         He attended his 10 year class reunion in 1994 and we had made plans to attend the 20 year class reunion in 2004. He was a good man and will be missed by those who knew him. 

Thank you for this forum to pass on the news.
