Lowell Area Schools —
For Pat Nugent, public service is a good fit both personally and professionally. A lifelong Lowell-area resident and graduate of Lowell High School, Nugent was first elected to the Board of Education in 1998. As the senior school board member he has now served under three superintendents. A math and history teacher at West Catholic High since 1993, Nugent called the board "a natural place where I can put my skills to use in the community"
