Mr. Cowee’s interests include playing in music ensembles, golfing, boating, and watching or playing sports of many kinds.  He has been married for 18 years to his wife Jessica and has a 15-year-old daughter, Abigail, who attends and performs with the TVHS color guard and concert band. Passionate to bring enjoyment to artistic young people, he continues to mentor and help many performers achieve their goals towards excellence in music and the marching visual arts.
