We received the following press release from Lowell Area Schools.
The Lowell Area Schools Board of Education is pleased to announce their unanimous vote to appoint Nate Fowler as the new Superintendent of Lowell Area Schools.
Mr. Fowler has been serving as the Interim Superintendent since the retirement of Greg Pratt in August. Prior to serving as the Interim Superintendent he served as the Curriculum Director at Lowell Area Schools. In his 24 years at Lowell Area Schools, he has also served as a teacher, coach, middle school assistant principal, principal and member of the Lowell Community.
When considering whether to spend several months and thousands of dollars conducting an outside search, the Board agreed to look first at local candidates with a proven track record of working with and for all students. Mr. Fowler easily fit into that role. The staff and community were very clear in their request that the new Superintendent be someone who will advocate for all students and who will effectively communicate with our students, staff and community.
Brian Krajewski, Board President, stated he is “looking forward to a great future for Lowell Area Schools under Mr. Fowler’s leadership.”
Paul Jacobus, Lowell Education Association President, stated “I want to congratulate Mr. Fowler on being named Superintendent of Lowell Area Schools. We have had a very positive working relationship with him, and I look forward to continuing that in the future.”
Selecting a Superintendent is the most important process for the Board. The Board believes they have found an outstanding leader and are appreciative of the staff and community feedback and support they have received during the search.
