Lowery named chairman

The chairs and members of the 11 Indiana Regional Works Councils were recently announced by Gov. Mike Pence.

Chris Lowery, Hillenbrand Inc. public policy and engagement director, will chair the Indiana Region 9 Works Council.

The Batesville resident, who has worked at Hillenbrand in a variety of capacities for 19 years, previously served as the Association of Indiana Counties executive director, aide to former Indiana Gov. Robert D. Orr and aide to then-Sen. Dan Quayle. He serves as the Batesville Community School Corp. board of trustees president and was a founder of the Batesville Community Education Foundation. He earned his undergraduate degree from Indiana University.

Other Region 9 council members are Melissa Ferry, Jesse Brand, Lawrence Garatoni, Jan Holm, Kathleen Huffman, Steven Mackey, Marilyn Metzler, Rebecca Reeves, James Riggs, Sue Smith, Bradley Street and John Burnett.

“Our administration remains committed to making career and vocational education a priority in every high school in Indiana,” Pence said. “I welcome the individuals named to the Indiana Regional Works Councils, a key initiative in making this goal a reality. The caliber, leadership and breadth of experience of the members, as well as the great Hoosier companies they represent, speaks volumes about the interest, passion and tremendous need for increased collaboration among business and education in order to best prepare Hoosiers for the demands of the work force and to place them on a pathway to success.”
