She is commended for her breadth of medical knowledge and ability to communicate with her patients, several of whom have been from the Forest Lake area. Dr. Bowers is currently medical director of Fairview Southdale Breast Center and Fairview Southdale Hospital Medical Oncology Clinic.

Bob Morehead
Bob, a 1957 graduate, has spent most of his life in Forest Lake, and has worked tirelessly throughout the community in many capacities. He has served the city as a member of the Economic Development Authority for 15 years. For five years he has served on the Business Retention & Expansion Task Force, an organization he was very instrumental in bringing to Forest Lake. He has been active with the Jaycees, Rotary Club, Chamber of Commerce and the American Cancer Society Relay for Life. He also put in countless hours in helping to build the “Ball Park” at Schumacher Field. In 2006 Bob was honored with the “Good Guy Award”, given out by the Becker Foundation. That award is given to an individual who excels in three important areas: His family, his faith and his service to the community. Bob excels in all these areas, especially in the area of helping others, where he is willing to assist anyone at the drop of a hat.
