Family creates two funds (Don and Carolyn Lowe Health Sciences Scholarship and Math/Sciences Scholarship)

Don Lowe was a latex chemist at Faultless Rubber Company following his service in Europe during World War II. He is credited with the development of latex balloon advances, the Omega solid core golf ball, and the chemical science behind a number of Kenner toys, including Stretch Armstrong and Baby Won’t Let Go. He was an active member of the community, serving his church and participating in local golf groups and community events.

Carolyn Lowe, a 1948 graduate of the Samaritan Hospital School of Nursing, provided caring nursing services for Samaritan Hospital, Medical Associates of Ashland, and private nursing patients during a career that spanned three decades. She is an active member of the Ashland community, serving as a volunteer at Samaritan Regional Health System and supporting her church and numerous community organizations.

The Lowe family created two scholarships—one for students majoring in Health Sciences and one for students majoring in math or science.
