“Scott has always been available when needed and visited many state associations with advice and help,” said nominator and former NGWA President Loyd Watson in the release. “I went on the NGWA board the same year as Scott. He and I dealt with a few issues that were tough, but we always worked them out together. I admire his energy, his ability, his passion, his love for people, and his love for the industry and NGWA.”

Fowler and his brother took over the business from their father, stated the release.
