• Harlan (Hays) Lowe

    My name is Harlan Hays Lowe, but I have always gone by my middle name Hays.  I have been an educator/coach for 15 years.  I am going into my 8th year with Ponder ISD, and my first in an administrative role.  

    I received my Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology (Physical Education) at Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, Texas, and my Master’s degree in Educational Administration at The University of Texas at Tyler. 

    My wife, Donnie, and I just celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary in June, and have been blessed with two wonderful children.  Noah will be a junior at Ponder High School this year, and Aubrey will be starting her 7th grade year at Ponder Junior High.

    I believe that communication, consistency, a true love for students, and a great sense of humor, are important characteristics that make a good administrator.

    I am very excited and thankful for this new opportunity at Ponder Elementary.
