Featured Alumni - Zachton Lowe, Class of 1998
"Always remember to look at the big picture and do not waste time worrying about the little things. " That's good advice from our April Alumni feature, Zachton Lowe (Class of 1998). He followed his own advice when he headed off to college at Wheaton after graduating from King's. There he received a degree in Economics. Zach then graduated first in his class and scored 99% on his dental boards at UW Dental School. After graduation, Zachton headed to the east coast to do his Orthodontic Residency at Boston University where he was also Class President. While at Dental School at UW, Zach met his wife Nikki who is also a dentist. Wanting to be closer to family and being engaged to Nikki, Zachton headed back to the Pacific Northwest to join the practice of his mentor, Dr. Simons. Zachton's Orthodontic office is in Shoreline just down the street from the King's campus. Since he began building his practice, Zachton has received the Pierre Fauchard Award in excellent dentistry, been invited to join the Dental Honor Society and given lectures to different dental groups around the Pacific Northwest.
Outside of his busy practice, Zach and Nikki are avid golfers and spend their evenings at local sporting events and venturing out to new restaurants. They also spend time with family and travelling to Hawaii.
Zach spent all but part of 1st and 2nd grade at King's. He is the oldest of 4 boys and every Lowe sibling attended King's from Kindergarten through graduation. In high school, Zach was in student council, ran the student store and excelled in a myriad of sports. Some of Zachton's fondest memories are the state competition in cross country and helping to plan the Jr/Sr banquet. He also loved the 8th grade Washington DC trip and getting to spend an entire week with friends and see all the monuments, buildings, and history he had read about or seen on TV. He fondly remembers Mr. Husby's 5th grade class when they had to count soda pop tops into the millions and create their own projects. Zachton chose to build a model airplane.
The work ethic taught at King's has stayed with Zach. From the teachers who challenged him academically in the classroom, to the coaches who pushed him to be a better athlete on the field, that strong work ethic and the importance of persevering has been a great asset since graduation. The friendships Zach made at King's has also been a great blessing; many are still his closest friends and they continue to support one another. You'll never meet a nicer guy than Zachton.
