Matt Lower

BIOGRAPHY:

My name is Matthew Allen Lower, and I am a senior at D.H. Conley High School. My parents are Jeff and Angie, and my sister is Meghan. I was born here in Greenville, and I am proud to say I have lived here all of my life. Through my 18 years here, I have had many lessons and experiences.

School is something I have put a lot of effort into in my life, and I think that it is very important. Not only does school teach you about a variety of subjects, but it teaches you about work ethic, deadlines, social skills, and much more. To further my education after high school, I will be attending UNC Charlotte as a Levine Scholar, and I intend on pursuing a degree in computer science.

Other than school, I also enjoy a variety of clubs and hobbies. I am the Drive Team Captain for the Pitt Pirates Robotics Team and the VP of Competitive Events and Design for my school’s FBLA chapter. When I’m not busy with my clubs, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, playing video games, listening to music, and working on personal video projects.
