Eilidh Lowery brings a unique background to her position of PPS Board Director: She is a pastor in the United Methodist Church's Southeast Parish. Encouraged by friends who saw her dedication to schools in her volunteer work, she ran for and won a spot on the Board.
Eilidh (which is pronounced like Hailey, with the h removed), has long volunteered at schools her daughter attended, serving on PTA and foundation boards, and at the district level on PPS's Citizen Review Committee and Principal Interview Team.
She grew up in Salem and played in school bands, and she passed the clarinet she used on to her daughter, who attends a PPS school. She earned a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Spanish from the University of Arizona and a Master of Arts in Ethics, Church and Society from the Garrett Evangelical Theological Seminary.
