With Sympathy: Longtime Dragon Passes Away
Former Carroll ISD Superintendent John Lowrey passed away this morning. A memorial service will be held this Saturday, Jan. 17 at 1 p.m. at United Methodist Church, 422 Church St., in Historic Grapevine. Lowrey came to Carroll High School in 1967 and by the time he retired in 1990, there were few roles he hadn’t held. He served as head boys’ basketball coach and also as an assistant coach in several other sports. Lowrey was responsible for starting the Dragon baseball program in 1969 and became high school principal in 1979. He also became the first middle school principal in 1971 and was later named Superintendent in 1988. In 2011, Lowrey was inducted into the inaugural class of the Carroll Athletic Hall of Fame. He received the Distinguished Service Award from Carroll ISD in May 2012. Please keep Lowrey’s family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.
