Hello, my name is Alex Botten. I was raised on a small farm just outside Carlton, Oregon.

I graduated from McMinnville High School in 1994, and Linfield College in 1998 with a Bachelor’s degree in Business.

As a freshman in High School, I started working at Northwest Logging Supply in McMinnville, and continued working there through college.

In 1999 I purchased the business, and still continue to operate it.

I have two wonderful daughters Adisyn, and Mallory, and my wife Andrea which all live in McMinnville.

In my free time I am an avid hunter and fisherman, and have a love for the outdoors.

I have been on the Y.C.H.S. Board of Directors since 2016, and it’s Secretary since 2017.
