Alex James '09 is January's Macbassador of the month. As a recent grad, he has generously shared his time and experience with current students through initiatives of the Career Development Center and Department of Multicultural Life.

“I feel indebted to Macalester for the opportunities the college has given me and the person Mac has helped me to become,” Alex said. “I wouldn't be the same person that I am today if I had gone to any other college, and for that I try to support Macalester as best I can.”

Because he has given to the Annual Fund consistently since he graduated, he is a member of the Summit Society. He also volunteers for Annual Fund Phonathons and serves as a class agent, a role in which he and two classmates encourage the Class of 2009 to support Macalester.
