It’s time once again for our Hometown Hero, with help from our friends at WNY Heroes who help us with our nominations every week.  This week, our Hometown Hero is from Buffalo, NY.  From our United States Navy, it’s Ensign Bailey McGowan!

Bailey is a 2012 University of Buffalo graduate, where she earned her bachelor’s degree and a 2014 Canisius College graduate where she earned an MBA.  She then turned to the Navy to become a supply officer.  Supply officers in the Navy ensure sailors have the tools and equipment they need to deter any threat and maintain war fighting readiness and threat deterrence in an era of great power competition.

She admits that growing up in Buffalo and being known for harsh weather, has helped her to overcome challenges and was something she  was able to carry over into the military,”


This week, we are honored to name Bailey McGowan our Hometown Hero of the week!
