Alumni Success Story: Lucia Alexander '21


Discovering opportunities at every turn, Tallulah Falls School alum Lucia Alexander (‘22) enthusiastically lives in pursuit of finding ways to stay involved in her community. 

Alexander is working towards an honors degree in marketing at Kennesaw State University. She is constantly networking and seeks out ways to connect with others. 

Being an honors student at KSU allows her the advantage of meeting people in different marketing professions so that by the time she graduates, she will have plenty of experience. Lucia is currently working as the marketing and communications assistant for the Kennesaw Sports and Recreation Department. She makes fliers, designs graphics, and helps with photography and content capture. 

On campus at KSU, Alexander serves as the diversity equity and inclusion chair for her sorority, Zeta Tau Alpha. In her role, she will ensure that each group within the sorority feels valued and heard and that her sorority highlights its diversity. She is also the secretary for faith-based group Kennesaw Episcopal Campus Ministries. She helped the ministry plan a retreat at Camp Michael in Toccoa and will continue to help plan future retreats. 

While at TFS, English teacher Kelli Bly encouraged Alexander to get involved and to stand up for what she believes in. “I think about her a lot,” said Alexander. “She taught us to look at life through different perspectives and to adapt.”

And that is just what Alexander did. She ran cross country, participated in Youth Leadership Habersham, served as the vice president and historian for the National Art Honor Society, served as an ambassador, was a member of the Global Citizens Awareness Panel, was a presidential scholar, and was a member of the recycling club. 

For Alexander, the top tool that TFS gave her was how to be a good leader and how to motivate and work with different groups of people. “Through cross country, I had to learn to adapt my leadership,” said Alexander. “Different types of people respond differently.” 

In addition, Alexander took 29 hours of dual enrollment courses before graduating from Tallulah Falls School in the spring of ‘22. As a result, she began her sophomore year at KSU with nearly enough coursework to be classified as a junior. “I learned how to manage my time,” said Alexander. “When I was doing a lot of dual enrollment hours, it was stressful, but it really paid off because now I can balance school, work, and extracurriculars, and it is not breaking my back.” 

Alexander has a message for TFS students: “Take more time to understand each other's cultures and experiences, and understand how they shape each person differently. Expand your mindset - it will enrich your human experience,” said Alexander.
