Consul General Jerak, acting on behalf of the President of the Republic of Slovenia Borut Pahor, presented the medal in recognition of Dr. Gobetz's life work, of his contribution to the recognizability of Slovenia, as well as for increasing the awareness of the achievements by Slovenians in the USA and the world.

Dr. Gobetz, philosopher, sociologist, anthropologist and professor emeritus of Kent State University is also the founder and administrator of The Slovenian-American Research Center through which he has for many decades selflessly researched, compiled, and archived information on Slovenian immigrants and their descendants whose creative activity in various fields has left a strong impression in the USA. His findings are collected in the book Slovenian-American Inventors and Innovators, a great work presenting collected archival documents which he donated to the National Archives of the Republic of Slovenia.
