Former K.C. Chief to Speak at WWU About Persistence, Excellence

Nick Lowery, a former place-kicker for the Kansas City Chiefs and a current motivational speaker, will share his story of persistence and excellence at William Woods University.


The program is scheduled for 7 p.m. Nov. 7 in Cutlip Auditorium of the McNutt Campus Center. This event is part of the President’s Concert and Lecture Series and is free and open to the public.


As an 11-time NFL All Pro, Lowery built a brilliant career out of an ability to achieve his best when it mattered most. As a place-kicker for the Kansas City Chiefs, he demonstrated that ability, game in and game out, in a remarkable career that lasted 17 seasons and saw him set league records for accuracy and most field goals.


Before joining the Chiefs, he was cut by eight different NFL teams at a total of 11 times.


Lowery is currently host of Headgames Radio, a nationally syndicated daily radio program that explores the topic of performance excellence. Through interviews and discussions with renowned experts and practitioners, Lowery offers listeners real insight into how to become the best they can be in their chosen field.


A two-time veteran of the White House Office of National Service (for both Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton), Lowery holds a master’s degree from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.
