Favorite Quote: “Don’t Give Up; Don’t Ever Give Up!” – Jimmy Valvano


Growing up an only child in Morton, IL, Mr. Lowder has eleven years of experience in education and joined the PND family this past year. He has made an impact in that time as the Head Tennis Coach and in P.E. classes, which allows him to see the students’ growth from day one to the last day of school. He has enjoyed getting to know the students at PND and seeing the love and support the faculty gives to each and every student. This support is something that Mr. Lowder credits to his own stronger connection with God. When not in the gym or in Mr. Lyons’s classroom, Mr. Lowder enjoys hanging out with his family, camping, fishing, and playing pickleball and tennis.
