“I am very honored and appreciative of this award,” Gottlob said. “I look forward to what Cowley has to offer students for generations to come.”

Gottlob’s company donated native plants, boulders, and grass.

Representing Cowley’s Phi Beta Lambda organization at the National Leadership Conference in Nashville, TN. in June, 2006, Gottlob became the first Cowley student to place first at the national level as he placed first in job interview.
