MS Head Coach - Kena Bowman
My name is Kena Bowman and I am in my 3rd year helping coach the middle school cheer team at CDS. I also coached one year at a middle school in Davie County. Cheerleading has always been something I had a great deal of love for. I loved being a cheerleader during my own middle school (junior high) and high school years. When my daughter decided to try all star cheerleading at 5, I was thrilled to share in her experiences. As she has grown and excelled, my love for this sport has only become stronger. Besides coaching CDS middle school cheer, I spend my mornings teach 4 and 5 year old preschoolers in our CDS Preschool. It is a job that I enjoy immensely and seeing the students learn and grow academically, in addition to seeing them grow in their love of Jesus is such a blessing in my life. My husband, Robert, daughter, Ella and I love being a part the Calvary Day School family.
