Sophia (Benick) Bouwens

Please pray for the health of Sophia (Benick) Bouwens '10. She was injured in a car accident on Monday night.

Bouwens, who is married and has two young children, was critically injured when another car ran a stop sign at the intersection of North Cypress Street and Sixth Street East, hit Bouwen and then another home. The impact of the collision sent Bouwen’s car through a retaining wall and into the home behind the wall. She is at Regions Hospital with multiple jaw fractures and a fracture at the base of her skull and spine that will likely require multiple surgeries.

She graduated from St. Thomas in 2010 with a degree in neuroscience and was part of the McNair Scholars Program.

A fund to help Bouwens and her family has been set up here.
