Cairo-Durham Central School District Announces Greene County Chief ADA Jeffrey Low as First “Mustang Monthly Alumni Spotlight” Recipient

CAIRO, NY – The Cairo-Durham Central School District is proud to announce the January 2024 recipient of the “Mustang Monthly Alumni Spotlight” is Greene County Chief Assistant District Attorney Jeffrey Low (‘89). 

Low has lived a life of public service following his graduation from Cairo-Durham High School, serving the U.S. Border Patrol and operating a sole legal practice prior to his appointment as Greene County Chief Assistant District Attorney in January 2024. 

“I am humbled to be recognized by the Cairo-Durham School District’s (Mustang Monthly) Alumni Spotlight,” Low said. “I spent the entirety of my elementary and high school years at Cairo-Durham. During those formative years, I was taught the value of hard work that allowed me to accomplish my goals. The true inspirations and heroes in our community come from the tireless efforts of our teachers and educators. Those heroes provided me with the educational foundations and the confidence to graduate from law school.”

Low, who has served as a prosecutor for the Cairo-Durham and Greene County communities for 10 years, was nominated by Lillian McCabe for his ability to give back to the next generation of Mustangs.

“Personally, Jeff presents genuine character marked by modesty and empathy. He does what is right rather than what is expedient,” McCabe said. “Jeff has volunteered his time outside of work sharing the athletic abilities he developed at Cairo-Durham (as a 1988 Baseball Section II champion) coaching local youth baseball and he has been competing in triathlons. Jeff Low is undoubtedly a meaningful role model to our students, personally and professionally.”

An active participant in Cairo-Durham activities, Low said the lessons he received from influential staff members during his time at Cairo-Durham helped shape his career path and skillset.

“My time at Cairo-Durham not only included classroom learning. I was a member of the school band and a representative for my class in the student council. I played basketball for Coach Waldron and baseball for Coach Karnes. Involvement in these extracurricular activities instilled life lessons on the value of teamwork and leadership. I want to say thank you and express my gratitude to my teachers, guidance counselors and coaches during my years at Cairo-Durham. Go Mustangs!”

In an effort to bridge the community and the Cairo-Durham Central School District, the “Mustang Monthly Alumni Spotlight” was created to provide an opportunity for community members to nominate members of the Cairo-Durham Class of 2018 or prior who have made an impact in the community, embrace Cairo-Durham pride and serve as role models to future generations of Mustangs to be recognized on the District’s platforms.

Nominations for the February 2024 “Mustang Monthly Alumni Spotlight” are officially open and can be submitted at the link below by Friday, Feb. 23, 2024 at 3 p.m. Past nominations will also be considered in the selection process.
