2016 Carmen and Tony Messineo Community Involvement Award Winner: Alex Gordon

Alex Gordon has served as a TeamMates mentor for over 20 years.  During that time he has been a fixture at Northeast High School where he has mentored 8 young men including Matthew, Michael, Brent, Alex, Justinus, Devin, and Christopher.  

His former mentee, Chris, says Alex believes that mentoring is a two way street because a mentor stands to learn a great deal from their mentee.  Alex is great at encouraging and stresses the importance of doing what you enjoy.  The most important lesson Chris learned from Alex, is that if you are going to do something, be great at it!   Mark Runyan, an Associate Principal at Northeast, says Alex is awesome and an extremely caring mentor.
