Propel Economic Growth by Supporting Education Initiatives

Speakers Series: Education in Lowell

The Lowell Plan will host a discussion on Education in Lowell on Thursday, June 30 at 8a.m., at Middlesex Community College’s Federal Building, 50 Kearney Square. Panelists will be Lowell Plan Board Members Jacqueline Moloney, Chancellor, UMass Lowell; James Mabry, President, Middlesex Community College; and Salah Khelfaoui, Superintendent of Schools. Lowell Plan member Atty. Michael Gallagher, of Gallagher & Cavanaugh LLP, will be the moderator.

The role of higher education as a major driver of economic development in Lowell is well-established, and the impact will increase as further changes in technology, globalization, and demographics impact this area.  To remain competitive in light of these changes, Lowell has adopted an innovative sprit offering a comprehensive education system from Pre-K through graduate school.

The Lowell Plan is dedicated to creating and maintaining the best urban education infrastructure in the area to attract talent and businesses. We join with Chancellor Moloney, President Mabry and Superintendent Khelfaoui in efforts to enable all students to succeed in the city’s vibrant, growing economy; make Lowell a regional leader in developing the highly skilled, creative, entrepreneurial workforce that will propel economic growth in the 21st Century; and leverage the resourcefulness of our entire community to meet these goals.
