“I hold a special place in my heart and attribute a portion of my personal and professional successes to my prep experience.” Alex Gerber ’99 Alex Gerber ’99 began working in commercial real estate while he was a junior at Southern Methodist University. “Post 9/11, the job market in DFW was not great, so I wanted to make sure I had a leg up on a career before finishing school.” After SMU, Alex developed more than three million square feet of shopping centers in Texas and Oklahoma. In 2009, he co-founded Cobalt Real Estate Services, LLC and acts as the COO of Cobalt with offices in DFW, Austin, San Antonio, and Houston. He also serves as the chairman of the board of BBGB Commercial Real Estate which manages and owns commercial real estate throughout Texas. Alex continues to have business ties to home, providing consulting services to Albuquerque based Titan Development for their Texas assets and serves as President for TST Realty LLC. Alex and his wife Tierney, live in San Antonio with their two boys, Holden, 4 and Preston, 2. In addition to Alex coaching his son’s tee ball team, the Gerber family enjoys running, swimming, biking, skiing, hunting, and fishing. Alex competed in the 2016 Ironman U.S. Championships and plans to compete again in April. He was recently accepted to become a USAT Level 1 Certified Triathlon Coach and will provide free coaching to wounded warriors and/or former military. He also qualified for the Olympic Distance Triathlon Nationals and will compete in Nebraska this summer. Our ’99 grad values his Prep experience and recently made his first gift to Sandia Prep’s Annual Fund. “I hold a special place in my heart and attribute a portion of my personal and professional successes to my Prep experience. I valued the curriculum, exposure, diversity, structure, and the Prep “family.” It is with great pleasure that I contribute to the fund in hopes it can impact a student similarly. My boys will attend a private school in San Antonio with similar values, and as a parent I strive to provide them with the best opportunities possible. Having been at Prep, my standards are high, and it is difficult to find a comparable school.” It’s no surprise that Ms. Sarah Wilson lists these as her favorite hobbies: being outside, hiking, camping, cross-country skiing, gardening, and traveling to different places. She has been a staple of Sandia Prep’s Outdoor Leadership Program and, of course, an integral part of the science and geology curriculum. “I am a fortunate person because I live what I teach. Through many summer courses, connections with professors at UNM, and my own travels I have experienced first-hand many of the topics I cover in my geology classes.” Students in Ms. Wilson’s classes are often out in the field in order to experience what they are learning. She feels it is one of the best parts of teaching. “Watching a student finally put all the pieces together and have an understanding of a concept is always a moment to cherish as a teacher. Being a lifelong learner is also a huge part of being a passionate teacher.” Ms. Wilson earned her undergraduate degree at the University of New Mexico and worked on her master’s degree at the New Mexico School of Mining and Engineering. She also spent many summers taking courses in different areas of science, most of which were geology focused with many of hours of field work. Ms. Wilson first came to Prep as a parent; her son Bryan graduated from Prep in 2009. We are thankful she decided to become part of the science faculty and continually share her passion for geology with our students. She has spent countless hours with students inside and outside the classroom and says some of her best Prep memories are being out in the Ojito Wilderness with her ninth-grade students “traveling through geologic time.” 9
