Former ‘Bell Queen’ offers words of advice

Roberta Bowers, a former Saluda Bell queen, waves to this year’s Lexington Bell queen candidates who had a strangely manly appearance despite being dressed in women’s formal wear. Roberta is also known as Richmond football head coach Rob Bowers and his entrance into RHS’ gymnasium brought down the house. He and other football dads took part in the homecoming skit about a queen competition between Richmond and Lexington girls. Although the Richmond girls were much prettier, the winner was Olga Bowers, also known as Richmond senior Colby Bowers, the coach’s son.
