Lowery appointed to Devereux board of trustees
John Lowery, president of Design At Work, has been appointed to the national board of trustees of Devereux, a nonprofit behavioral health care provider headquartered in Philadelphia.
Lowery, founder of the Houston-based public relations and advertising firm, has been an advocate for Devereux for more than a decade, according to a press release.
He served on the Devereux Texas Advisory Board for 14 years and acted as chairman in 2005. Lowery also founded the Divots for Devereux Golf Classic in 2002, which has raised more than $400,000 for the agency.
Devereux serves individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities, behavioral disorders and mental illness.
"I am honored to be a part of such a distinguished board of trustees whose mission is to support an incredible nonprofit that seeks to help improve the lives of those in our community who need us most," said Lowery in the release. "I look forward to having the opportunity to contribute and assist this organization to help others be successful."
Lowery officially began his role as a board member in November.
Founded in 1912 by Philadelphia school teacher Helena Trafford Devereux, the organization recently celebrated its 100th anniversary of providing research-based assessment and treatment programs for children and adults. Devereux employs more than 6,000 staff and operates 15 centers in 11 states.
