Biography

State Representative Rhetta Andrews Bowers was elected to serve House District 113 in the Texas House of Representatives on November 8, 2018.

Growing up, Bowers was drawn to a life of activism at an early age. Following the example of her mother, a prominent community leader, and her father, a nationally recognized surgeon, Bowers volunteered to phone bank for the late Congressman Mickey Leland as a pre-teen.

Throughout her later life, Bowers has continued to invest her time and energy in her community. She has served as a substitute teacher and a PTA member with the Garland Independent School District. She was appointed to the Rowlett Parks and Recreation Advisory Board, where she served for eight years. Recently, Rhetta has served as the Chair of the Dallas Woman’s March, a title which she as held for the past three years. All the while, Rhetta has continued to be an active member of St. Paul United Methodist Church and the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, of which she is a lifetime member.

Bowers is an alumna of both Spelman College and Texas Southern University, earning her bachelor’s degree in Telecommunications, with an emphasis in Broadcast Journalism. A native Houstonian, she currently resides in Rowlett, TX with her husband and their children.
