A Pittsburg State University graduate made another substantial donation to the scholarship fund he founded to honor one of his favorite professors.
John E. Lowe, former executive vice president with ConocoPhillips and now a senior executive adviser at Tudor, Pickering, Holt and Co., recently donated $150,000 to the Guy Owings Scholarship, which is named for the former PSU accounting professor.
Lowe and his wife Susan, who is also a PSU graduate, founded the scholarship in 2009 with a $100,000 donation to honor Owings, who was instrumental in helping Lowe earn his accounting degree in 1981.
“Guy Owings had a great impact on my life, both in college and in my professional career,” Lowe said. “This is my way of saying ‘thank you’ to him and to PSU, and it’s my way of helping current and future PSU students chase their dreams.”
