Carolyn R. Lowe and Family (Don and Carolyn Lowe Math/Science Scholarship)
Don Lowe (1923-2005), a lifetime resident of Ashland and a 1942 graduate of Ashland High School, 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.
The Lowe family honors Don’s commitment to, and innovations in, the field of latex chemistry and engineering by recognizing a graduate of Ashland High School with this scholarship in his name.
