Rachel G. Bowers


Rachel G. Bowers is a graduate of the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Georgia. Her nearly four-year stint with The Red & Black, the independent student newspaper covering the University community, culminated with a semester term as its editor-in-chief, during which she planned and led the transition from printing five days a week to publishing online daily and printing once a week along with a new monthly magazine. She now serves as assistant sports editor for the Athens Banner-Herald and onlineathens.com, responsible for coverage of 17 high schools, local sports and University of Georgia sports. Feature writing is her strong suit, though she is also heavily involved in page design, website content, app design and special-section design.
