Current term of office: Jan. 1, 2022 – Dec. 31, 2025
Seth Bower is serving in his first term as a member of the Groveport Madison Schools Board of Education, having been elected in November 2021.
Seth grew up in the Columbus area, graduating from Pickerington North High School in 2004. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in history from Ohio University, graduating in 2008.
Seth and his family have lived in the Independence Village area since 2015. He is a single father of three (who all attend Madison Elementary School). Seth states, "I decided to move to the Groveport Madison area after looking at several school districts. Groveport Madison was the perfect fit for my family. It's become where my three children and I are very comfortable, and we truly consider it to be our home.”
Seth works for the City of Groveport as the Recreation Director at the Groveport Recreation Center.
He has been involved in two of the school district’s levy campaigns, co-chairing the May 2018 campaign. He also serves on the Board of Groveport Madison Human Needs.
Seth said he chose to run for the Board of Education because "I hope to work together with the Board and the superintendent to help create the right environment
for our schools to perform at their very best, to foster innovative academic instruction and higher achievement standards, and to ensure all of our children graduate prepared to be successful adults.”
