Why I’m Running

I want to to continue to improve the educational experience for Avon students in a cost effective way. Although I have no children, I passionately believe in education. I have a particular interest computer literacy and in gifted students, who often seem to be overlooked. I’m proud that the Avon school system now identifies gifted students, and I look forward to continuing to provide additional instructional support for gifted students.

Thank you,

Houston Putnam Lowry
