(EDWARDSVILLE) - Friends of Illinois State Senator Evelyn Bowles (D-56), who recently retired after 50 years of public service, have established the Evelyn Bowles Public Service Scholarship Endowment at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.
The scholarship will be awarded annually to an SIUE student who is a resident of Madison County, has financial need; has demonstrated an interest in participating in government; has a record of government, public or community service; and has the characteristics of those underrepresented in the ranks of elected officials.
"What could be more fitting to Evelyn's legacy of public service than encouraging others to follow in her footsteps," said Gail Donnelly Bader, a friend and supporter of Bowles.
...
"The scholarship allows others to follow Evelyn's example of hard work, fairness and dedication."
Bowles, who served the Madison County area in various public offices for 50 years, said the endowment is "an honor and a suitable way for others who truly have an interest in public service and public policy to follow their hearts.I am very pleased that my friends have chosen this avenue as a tribute to the work I loved."
Bowles also announced that she was transferring $20,000 from her Senate campaign fund to the SIUE Foundation to help fund the scholarship endowment.
"I can't think of anything that would mean more to me than encouraging others to take an active role in public service, the electoral process and government," said Bowles."I hold a special place in my heart for SIUE.Knowing that others will benefit from this scholarship, and being of service to the people of Madison County means a great deal to me."
"Evelyn Bowles has represented Madison County well," said SIUE Chancellor David Werner.
...
She has set an example for others to follow, and anyone who knows Evelyn will not be surprised to hear that, with this endowment, she is continuing her role as an advocate for education and public service."
Bowles has served as State Senator from the 56th District for the past eight years, providing a voice in Springfield for constituent concerns and working to better the Madison County area and the State of Illinois.Bowles also has given her time and talents to innumerable community and charitable organizations.

Years ago former Madison County Clerk Evelyn Bowles mailed out red-and-white cards, and today most counties issue different-colored cards every two years so that voters can tell their new card at a glance.
One weekend early in his administration, Von Nida considered changing to a more masculine color.His clerks, however, who knew public sentiment, advised against it.
Bowles retired and lives in Edwardsville.The color of the registration was never much of an issue during her tenure.
"No question it was a 'lady color,'" she said.
