Alex Hughes

“I constantly pass the statue of General Lafayette during my day-to-day. The more I learn about Lafayette, with the inspiration of Dr. Ingram, the more I realize that Lafayette is someone we can point to as a man who was ahead of his time. This is why I give my time and talents to the Alliance and its mission.”
