Sydney Bowling was a student at Grandview Elementary who battled an inoperable brain tumor. The tumor was found when she was in kindergarten. Sydney attended school here through her third-grade year. She was an inspiration to our students and staff. Sydney was known for her kindness, beautiful smile, love of One Direction, butterflies, the color purple, and a great sense of humor.
Unfortunately, Sydney lost her battle with cancer at a very early age. Grandview Student Council decided to create and dedicate a tree and flower garden on the front side of our school, by Iowa Avenue, to always remember our special friend Sydney.
