August 16, 2018, was declared “Lowell Porter Day” by Pierce County Executive at Lowell’s retirement party hosted by his staff. Lowell had served as Director of Pierce County Emergency Management for the County since 2013 and was on the Center’s Advisory Board. Lowell supported the Center in its efforts to establish a Homeland Security-Emergency Management Bachelor of Applied Science Degree Program (BAS HSEM) at Pierce College in Lakewood. Lowell was joined by his wife Julie and relaxed during the recognition celebration in hand built wooden rocking chairs that were gifts from his staff. Speakers including our Center Director, Linda Crerar, thanked him for his service and congratulated him on his work providing strong and supportive leadership to the Emergency Management Department and Pierce County citizens.
