During his first year at Hiram, Alex served as the Senator of the Freshman Class before switching to the Senator of Whitcomb Hall in the Spring semester. Additionally, he was a member of Hiram Men’s Volleyball team for their inaugural season and earned accolades at the end of the season such as AMCC Newcomer of the Year and a selection to the AMCC All-Division first-team. During his second year, Alex was a member of the Garfield Center for Public Leadership program, where he studied foreign policy and diplomatic relations surrounding NAFTA 2.0 and the Nuclear Proliferation on the Korean Peninsula. Simultaneously, he served as the Senator of East Hall and held a position on the Dining Hall committee which sought to further improve the food options at the dining hall. Furthermore, he served on the Academic Programming Committee and the Transformers Committee where he was able to offer his input as a student in effort to  advance the Tech and Trek initiative at Hiram and critically think of opportunities to improve the curriculum and academic experience at Hiram. In the Fall semester of his sophomore year, Alex created a not for profit organization in honor of a dear friend who passed away over the summer of 2018, and has since then become an advisor to the Board of Directors for the Conor J. Long Foundation. Alex remains a supporting figure in his hometown, Hamburg NY, seeking to cultivate individual growth and community development through systematic improvement. His mission for this year is to further enhance the positive relations between Hiram students, faculty, staff, administration, and community members.
