Meet Our Club President!

 Janice Craddock Bowen

Janice Craddock Bowen joined the club in January 2012. Before joining she has been a member of other area clubs for a couple of years. She is very energetic and sprang into action by getting our lapidary shop in shape and starting cabbing classes. You can find her hosting shop hours and actively looking for others who want to help supervise the shop. If you are interested in learning how to make beautiful cabochons out of slabs of rock, this is the place for you.

Janice was formerly the newsletter editor for the club. As the newsletter editor, she strived to keep club members up-to-date with the latest information about meetings, field trips, and other activities of the club. Janice is also the Show Chairperson for the 2018-2022 years, vendor chair 2018-2024 and Club President for 2021-2024.

When Janice isn't at the club, she works as Director of the Information Technology at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art. With her background in girl scouts, she is always prepared for the latest adventure the club presents. She is a member of her church marimba band. Now that her two children are out of the house, she has more time to pursue her lapidary interest, which are mainly related to minerals and cabbing but she is learning to appreciate a good fossil when she sees one.
