With more than 30 years of dedicated service to Cowley College, Somsy Sengvixay, lead groundskeeper, is the spring 2021 recipient of Cowley College’s Tiger Heart Award.

The award is presented each semester to an employee that has gone above and beyond to help a fellow employee, therefore exhibiting the heart of a tiger.

Past Tiger Heart Award recipients include Rikki Hettenbach (fall 2019), Robin Graves (spring 2020) and Liz Shepard (fall 2020).

According to previous Tiger Heart Award recipient Liz Shepard, Sengvixay goes above and beyond to help his fellow employees, or in his words, family.

“You can see the love of all things Cowley when you see the campus through his eyes,” Shepard said. “He makes it beautiful for us and the students.” Sengvixay received the traveling award, a crystal tiger head.
