Yow is currently the Vice President of Sales at Bossong Medical LLC, where he has been for almost seven years. Before that, he was the Sales Director at Elastic Therapy Inc. for 10 years. He has a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Appalachian State University. Yow also served as a board member on the Asheboro City Board of Education for 18 years, finishing his tenure in 2016.
“That was a great experience,” said Yow of serving on the Board. “It just really opens up your eyes and your mind to the challenges of public education. I really developed a passion for that.
“My first hope is to learn a lot as quickly as possible so that I can be an effective board member. I want to learn a lot about this part of the education system versus the elementary through 12th grade. The continuing education part, for me, is very, very important. Giving young adults an opportunity at low cost — what the College is doing for the high school kids here and with the Early College — is just fantastic. It’s exciting.”
