Paying it Forward - 2008 Profiles

Ann M. Howe (Lowry)

Alumna - Scottsdale, Arizona

Ann Howe credits University of Phoenix for helping her achieve her professional and personal goals. Today she is content as a successful career woman who juggles her time as a teacher, wife, and mother. After meeting Angela Gulick through mutual friends a couple of years ago, she seized the opportunity to help change Angela’s life for the better through the Paying It Forward scholarship program. Ann is inspired by the many ways Angela helps ease the lives of others and thought this was the perfect way to reciprocate.
