2014-2014 Young Achievers Award    

Alex Gottlob

Alex Gottlob, the 2006-2007 Student of the Year at Cowley College, and the owner of Gottlob Lawn and Landscape LLC, and Prairie Outfitters and Excursions, was announced as this year’s recipient of the Young Achiever Award. The award recognizes individuals age 40 or younger that have had success in their educational achievements, careers and community service, and/or service to Cowley College.

“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, who went on to receive a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Southwestern College in 2009, decided to give back to Cowley by donating $28,000 worth of landscaping to the Travis Hafner Training Center capital campaign.

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

At Cowley, Gottlob was involved in Phi Beta Lambda, Campus Christian Fellowship, and was a Cowley Ambassador.

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.
