I Support Columbia State because...

Mike Alexander

the incredible impact the College has on its entire nine county service area, and beyond.  I was first introduced to Columbia State through connections that were involved with the Foundation Board.  The more I learned about the College's mission and what it means to all types of students from diverse backgrounds, it made it easy to say, "yes" when I was asked to serve as a Trustee myself.  As I share the Columbia State message to individuals, businesses, and organizations throughout the community, I continually meet people who express that Columbia State has been an important part of their education. With support from the state to construct new facilities, I am certain the forward-thinking leadership at Columbia State will bring on new and expand existing programs that make sense now and in the future.  I am humbled and honored to be a part of Columbia State.

Mike Alexander, owner of Signs First Franklin, has served on the Foundation Board since 2017 and is currently Board Chair.
