Kathy Lowe

Kathy has been a Titusville resident for 40 years. She is currently an active member of the Riverview Pilot Club (RPC) and the YMCA Tennis Committee, serving as treasurer. She was recently involved in redoing the Kid’s Interview Room at Titusville Police Headquarters, for RPC which also provided the funding. She has BA in Social Sciences and History from Southern Methodist University and a Masters in Learning Disabilities from Georgia State University.

Kathy retired from the Brevard County School System in 2014 where she served as the Adults with Disabilities Learning Specialist. In this role she provided opportunities in the community for individuals with disabilities to pursue employment and to develop self- determination skills and personal responsibility. The program brought agencies working with individuals with disabilities together to educate parents, staff and the public about the positive attributes of individuals with disabilities and services available.

She created the Learning Disabilities position at Brevard Community College (Eastern Florida State). She served as the Adult Education Outreach Coordinator for Adult Education Brevard Community College for 10 years. She helped oversee programs that involved working with underserved and undereducated adults in improving their literacy skills and lives. Demonstrated value of this program included hearing individuals in the program write and read letters to their families and friends for the first time and observing these individuals aspiring to work on a high school diploma.

Kathy co-established the Interagency Council of Brevard County for Individuals with Disabilities through Project Connect at the University of Florida. She created “LEAP”, a training program for individuals with disabilities. The LEAP Program, ESE Department and the Titusville High School BLAST program established the first school-based enterprise in North Brevard for individuals with disabilities at the Titusville County Government Complex. This was in conjunction with Titusville High ESE staff and Robin Fisher’s County Commissioner’s Office.
