Commencement will begin at 1 p.m. and is open to the public.

Mr. Bowers grew up in Allendale, South Carolina. His experiences, including an absentee father, trouble with the law, almost becoming homeless and watching his mother struggle financially gave him the motivation to succeed against all odds.

In 2006 Bowers made the decision to attend Benedict College, earning his Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing. While at Benedict, he was elected Senior Vice President and involved in various community service projects through his fraternity. In addition, he was awarded the prestigious David H. Swinton Presidential Service Award for his willingness to go above and beyond in service to the community. With his degree, Mr. Bowers earned the distinction of being the first in his family to graduate college.

After graduation, Bowers began working for a fortune 500 company in sales becoming a Top Performer Sales banker within the first year. At the age of 26 he started building his second business Tim Bowers Speaks working as the ambassador for his motivational brand Average to Awesome.

In 2017, Bower published his first book “Average to Awesome: Transitioning From Where You Are to Where You Want to Be” an interactive, self-help guide to those who refuse to live a life of mediocrity. In addition, Bower is a top ten finalist for Columbia Metropolitan Magazine’s Capital Young Professional Award.

With over seven combined years of working professionally, speaking and entrepreneurship; Bowers knows how to motivate, inspire and empower his audience on what it takes to move life forward. Bowers lives by the mantra: “You were not born to be average.  You were born to leave a legacy worth remembering.”
