He is a student athlete as well, participating in his fourth year of Division I Men's Lacrosse at the Mount. He is a member of SAAC (Student Athlete Advisory Committee). Alex said  "The internship process has been of great value to me because it has improved my leadership skills, patience, time management, and, most importantly, it has taught me how to teach. As a student athlete, this internship has made me a better leader, communicator and student of the game when I'm on the field. I have greatly enjoyed the internship because of the experience I've received, the relationships I've made with my mentor, supervisor, faculty, other interns, and of course, the students. It has really solidified my desire to become a teacher and has encouraged me to continually strive to become better at what I do. I absolutely feel that this internship has prepared me for my future career."

   services like Youth Police Academy, Child Safety Seats, Home Security, Persons- 
   At-Risk Registry, and Project Life Saver. Here’s what she had to say about the

“CSU is filled with some of the best people I have ever worked with.  This unit focuses on crime prevention and safety. They want to stop crime before it happens and a lot of their energy is focused on educating the community on crime prevention. The Community Service unit also focuses on the safety of the community. This unit achieves safety and crime prevention through a variety of services …I had a crazy busy summer but I learned a lot more than I expected to & it was the best internship I have had so far!”
