FAU Schedules Memorial Service for Two Former Employees

BOCA RATON, FL (March 29, 2011) – Florida Atlantic University will host a memorial service for David and Sandy Lowe, two former FAU employees who were killed in a highway accident in February, on Friday, April 15, at 4 p.m., in the Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing auditorium, 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton campus. The service is free and open to the public, and members of the Lowe family are expected to attend. The College of Nursing is located on the east side of campus, near the Administration Building.
                The Lowes both worked at FAU for 20 years before they retired in 2004, and were well known to many inside and outside of the university community. David was a fundraiser who rose to the position of associate vice president for development, and Sandy was an adjunct instructor of English in the Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters. Both were dedicated to helping students, David through the generation of scholarship dollars, and Sandy as a teacher and mentor.
                The David and Sandy Lowe Faculty and Staff Legacy Scholarship has been established in the FAU Foundation in memory of the Lowes. Anyone wishing to contribute to this fund may do so by making out a check to the FAU Foundation and noting fund number SFA041 on the memo line. Checks should be mailed to the FAU Foundation Inc., Administration Building, Room 295, Florida Atlantic University, 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton, FL  33431.
