Howe currently works for a law firm in Minnesota. He will receive induction in the Truman State University Athletics Hall of Fame along with Cassy (Felkerson) Haddox from the volleyball program. She was the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association MVP and first-team AVCA All-American following the 2001 season in which the program set a school record with 37 wins and only two losses. The team won their first outright MIAA title with a 16-0 record, hosted and won their first NCAA South Central regional championship and advanced to the NCAA Elite Eight before bowing out in a five-set loss to South Dakota State.

Haddox and Howe will be inducted as part of the Alumni & Friends Banquet on Friday night.
