The United States Conference of Mayors: Celebrating 75 Years

Conference's Eugene Lowe Honored by Florida Hometown for Achievements

Eugene Lowe, Assistant Executive Director or The Conference of Mayors, was honored February 19 by his hometown of Eustis, Florida, named by the Eustis African-American Heritage Association as a Black Achiever.

Lowe, a 1965 graduate of Eustis Vocational High School, was recipient for his work as a "legislative lobbyist" at The Conference of Mayors, where he has been a housing and economic development specialist since joining the Conference in 1984.

The first time awards to celebrate Black History Month in the Florida community were part of an effort to provide living history and role models for young people in a variety of professional fields.

Lowe, who took part in a local parade honoring other recipients in Eustis, is a 1969 graduate of Morehouse College in Atlanta and received his masters in public administration from Syracuse University in 1970 where he also worked on his doctorate in public administration.

His mother, Queen Esther Lowe, resides in Eustis.
