The arena was not the first contribution she and her husband had made to the WWU equestrian program. Together they created an endowed scholarship called the Gayle S. Lampe Equestrian Achievement Award. Although she was born and raised in mid-Missouri, Rowland was educated at Smith College, from which she received a bachelor of arts in English literature.
Her extra curricular interests were centered on writing, music and dance. She continues those interests today, serving as a trustee of the Nelson Atkins Museum of Art and the Kansas City Symphony.
Rowland is a past director of the American Royal Association and past chair of the horse shows, and she has served on the visiting committee for the equestrian program at William Woods.
