MOBILE, Ala. – University of Mobile faculty and staff celebrated the careers of two longtime faculty members during a reception May 9 in Weaver Hall on campus. Family and friends also gathered to congratulate Becky Fox, associate professor of music in the Alabama School of the Arts, and Dr. Anne Lowery, professor of business in the School of Business.

Both celebrated 27 years of service as full-time faculty members at the Christian university. Additionally, Fox served as a part-time music instructor for 11 years prior to joining the full-time faculty.

Fox began her career at the university, then Mobile College, in 1979 teaching part-time in the music department. In 1990 she became a full-time music instructor. She recently co-chaired a successful fundraising campaign that resulted in the university’s recognition as an All-Steinway School.

Fox holds a Bachelor of Music and Master of Music Education in piano performance from William Carey College. She and her husband, Dr. Rod Fox, live in Mobile.
