Lowrey spent eight years at the helm of TCPS Baseball, earning a playoff appearance in each season, highlighted by a Class A state championship in 2016.
He led the charge at TCPS to build and expand its baseball facilities, including raising funds for the playing diamond, lighting, dugouts, press box and stands.
TCPS Athletic Director Aubrey Boren stated, “The heart of our recognition is to honor the Lowrey family in their solid testimony lived out in daily adversity.”
Included in this recognition is Lowrey’s wife Jennifer, who has a condition called Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis; a chronic and progressive lung disease where the alveoli become scarred and stiff with no known causes, making it difficult to breathe and creating a burden for the body to get enough oxygen into the bloodstream. She has already had one double-lung transplant and is currently in line awaiting her second.
Lowrey commented, “TCPS is and always will be a special place to our family. Many will think of me when they see the name Lowrey on the baseball field, naturally, as I coached there, butI feel it is as much or more about my wife Jennifer. She gave me the courage, vision, drive and purpose to build something great. She has inspired so many by her fight. I pray that when we see our name, it will point toward what God has done for us and through us in our journey. I am humbled and very appreciative of the entire TCPS family for this kind gesture. To God be the glory.”
Boren said TCPS uses stones as markers like biblical Old Testament ages when the school honors someone significant in its history.
“It’s a statement of God’s work. We feel that the Lowrey family is a story worth telling and have also placed a stone in the baseball area to remind us and others to fight the good fight daily. So, with board approval as the athletic director, I hope Will is honored to know that we feel his impact is eternal and the wins, scholarships and championships are nice, but life is bigger than ball. Thank you to the Lowrey family for a life that challenges us all to keep fighting the good fight.”
