"One thing HH taught me was the importance of having a close knit community. Playing football, wrestling, and lacrosse was my first real experience of working as a team to accomplish a common goal. Being the captain of these thrree Hamden Hall teams served as the foundation for my leadership skills, which have put to the test and stressed every day. I now have that tight-knit community in the military, but the roots stem back to my days at Hamden Hall," maintained Alex.
Alex is also the co-founder and executive vice president of a national nonprofit for veterans named Reviresco. Reviresco aims to bridge the civilian-military divide by engaging, educating, empowering civilians to go beyond saying "thank you for your service" to our veterans.
