harvests each fall. These early experiences instilled in her a strong work ethic and dedication to the pursuits she loves.

Prior to joining Bowlers, Gracie was part of the 2023-2024 CEO class of Lawrence County. It was during this time that her interest in the automotive industry peaked when Mark Bowler became her mentor and offered her a job at this his company. Gracie's favorite aspect of the industry is the supportive and welcoming nature of everyone involved. Despite her deep-rooted love for farming, Gracie has also developed a passion for the automotive industry.
