Updated: Jun 29, 2020
Southwestern Oklahoma State University’s Everett Dobson School of Business & Technology (SBT) in Weatherford recently honored eight students as “outstanding students” in various disciplines offered by the school.
Among the recipients were SWOSU student-athletes Kason Cook of the Bulldog Men’s Golf team and Kaitlyn Dillon of SWOSU Volleyball. The selections were made by SBT faculty members. Awards are based on academic achievement, leadership abilities and service activities.
Cook (Hydro, Oklahoma) was chosen as the Outstanding Student in Management.
Although his senior season was cut short, he was selected as his Team’s MVP and earned a spot on the NCAA Division II PING All-Central Region Team last month.
“We are so excited for Kason to receive this honor from the School of Business and Technology,” SWOSU Head Golf Coach Brad Fleetwood said. “This just further proves Kason’s dedication both on the golf course and in the classroom. He truly embodies what it means to be a student-athlete.”
Dillon (Edmond, Oklahoma) was selected as the Outstanding Student in Marketing.
She is SWOSU Volleyball’s career leader in digs and service aces and a two-time Great American Conference Defensive Player of the Year and last week she was selected as SWOSU’s Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year.
“We couldn’t be more proud of the career that Kaitlyn has had here at SWOSU, both as a player and a student,” SWOSU Head Volleyball Coach Josh Collins said. “Not only was she one of the most dominant defenders the GAC has ever seen, but she is also an excellent student and a wonderful person. This award is one more testament to how dynamic this kid is. Congrats KD!”
