Tennessee College of Applied Technology-Oneida/Huntsville would like to recognize alumni Jamie Bowling for excelling in his profession.

The hospital in Scott County closed on July 1, 2016, but thanks to the help of Jamie Bowling it is reopening. Jamie Bowling was hired on February 20, 2017 as the Big South Fork Medical Center IT Manager. Tony Taylor, Big South Fork Medical Center Chief Executive Officer comments, “Jamie is INVALUABLE. Without him, we would not be opening the hospital. We are fortunate to have been able to hire someone with his knowledge and expertise. His responsibilities have included rebuilding the network infrastructure from the ground up for the new hospital. In addition, he has implemented new servers and new defenses in the network security, and he is conducting the user training for all hospital employees.”

Jamie’s TCATOH Computer Information Technology instructor Rodney Stephens states, “I have been impressed with Jamie as a TCAT student and an alumni. He has been an achiever both in and out of the classroom. While in the CIT program he received 12 certifications. The most advanced being the Microsoft’s Certified Professional in Windows Server 2012/R2.  Jamie participated in the SkillsUSA 2015 Washington Leadership Training Institute and as a SkillsUSA participant in our local 2015 Veterans Day American Legion Wreath Ceremony. Also, he was chosen as the 2015 Tennessee College of Applied Technology-Oneida/Huntsville Outstanding Student of the Year. At the age of 21, he is an exemplary example and role model that our younger generation should pattern. His character in the classroom and out of the classroom should be desired by all. Jamie’s enthusiasm for IT was evident the first day he began the CIT program. Jamie immediately reflected a presence of compassion and leadership. Jamie has a heart of service. He is a passionate person who has approached everyone with extreme politeness and always has presented a positive attitude. He set his expectations high. While enrolled at TCAT, he worked weekends and evenings serving local companies with their IT needs. His popularity and respect as a skilled IT expert in our service area has grown among the business community developing into full time IT employment. Jamie now serves on the CIT advisory committee.” The College President Dwight Murphy comments, “Jamie is an example of a student with a strong desire and ambition in a technical program. This is what Tennessee College of Applied Technology-Oneida/Huntsville does”
