ESC auditorium named for former Superintendent
Published on November 17, 2016
The South Central Ohio Educational Service Center Governing Board, during its meeting on Nov. 10, approved naming their auditorium “Howard Hall” in honor of former ESC Superintendent and current board member Lowell Howard.
The auditorium is located in the ESC Academic Center, at 522 Glenwood Ave., in New Boston, Ohio.
Prior to the ESC’s relocation in 2013, the building was formerly New Boston High School – where Howard began his career as a social studies teacher in 1970. He later became principal and then superintendent, before retiring in 2001. Even then he continued serving districts, such as Eastern Local, Rock Hill Local, and Manchester Local schools.
In 2007 he came out of retirement to become superintendent of the South Central Ohio ESC. He retired from the ESC in July of 2015. Last fall, Howard received the Ohio ESC Association’s Lifetime Achievement Award, and in February of 2016 he was appointed to serve on the ESC Governing Board.
“It's very humbling that the Educational Service Center Board bestowed this honor upon me. I have spent over 37 years working within the walls of ‘Glenwood By The Hill’ and have many fond memories of my experiences working with excellent students and staff in such a wonderful and historical building that oftentimes seemed like my second home,” Howard said.
