FOUNDING STORY

March 9, 2016

Year after year it pained former Widener University student-athlete, Tracy A. Jones, to see both his peers and aspiring athletes overachieve in athletics, only to underachieve in life.

Alexander Foundation in 2016. Learn More.


 

Individuals can acquire a unique set of transferable skills through their participation in sports and team environments. While there is a breadth of education programs and personal development opportunities available, the T. Alexander Foundation differs in that the organization courageously merges athletics, academics and character development to facilitate the advancement of dynamic individuals and their communities.
