Pitt State alumni John and Susan Lowe, of Houston, Texas, have pledged the largest single gift in the history of the Kelce College of Business. The $3 million gift will go toward facility improvements at the KCOB.
“John and Susan understand the difference a quality education can make in a student’s life because they experienced it for themselves at Pittsburg State,” said President Steve Scott. “Their lead gift will allow us to develop plans for a facility that meets the needs of tomorrow’s business leaders.”
John Lowe is a senior executive adviser for Tudor Pickering Holt & Co., an energy investment and banking firm. Lowe spent more than 30 years with ConocoPhillips and predecessor firms, where he held a series of executive positions, including executive vice president of exploration & production; executive vice president of commercial; and executive vice president of planning, strategy and corporate affairs.
