Chaunté Lowe Appointed to President’s Council

WASHINGTON, D.C. – President Joe Biden announced today his intent to appoint 27 individuals, including Georgia Tech track and field alumnae and four-time Olympian Chaunté Lowe, to the President’s Council on Sports, Fitness, & Nutrition.

The President’s Council on Sports, Fitness, & Nutrition is a federal advisory committee that aims to promote healthy, accessible eating and physical activity for all Americans, regardless of background or ability.

One of Georgia Tech’s most decorated student-athletes, Lowe earned 13 all-ACC honors, six All-America accolades, three NCAA Championships and was inducted into the Georgia Tech Sports Hall of Fame in 2015. Lowe graduated from Georgia Tech with a degree in economics in 2008 and went on to become a four-time Olympian, 2008 Olympic high jump bronze medalist, American record holder, three-time World Champion, eight-time national outdoor champion and 12-time US National Champion.

In 2019, Lowe was diagnosed with Stage 1 triple negative breast cancer while training for her fifth Olympic team. She continued her training regime while undergoing chemotherapy, all while using her platform to advocate for breast cancer awareness. Through her journey, Lowe was awarded the 2021 NCAA Inspiration Award.

Now a retired professional athlete, Lowe continues to inspire audiences with her story through professional speaking, advocating for health and wellness and the fight against breast cancer.
