36 miles from ABHS in Whiteriver, Show Low is twice the size of Pinetop-Lakeside with a population of over 10,000 people. According to local legend, the unique name pays tribute to a poker game between Corydon Cooley and Marion Clark, two partners in a 100,000-acre ranch who'd agreed to grant full ownership to whoever showed the lowest card at the end of a marathon game of poker. Cooley showed the deuce of clubs and replied, "Show low it is." As a further tribute, Show Low's main street is named "Deuce of Clubs."
Today, Show Low is home to a diverse community with increased activity in the Summer months from residents in surrounding desert areas.
