Alethia Russell knows about education. After graduating from Gadsden City, she earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Auburn University and a master’s degree in higher education administration from the University of Alabama. She is currently pursuing her doctoral degree in higher education/education policy studies at Indiana University Bloomington. When she completes her own education, Alethia plans to head to Washington, D.C. to conduct education policy research and advocacy for a non-profit or an education thinktank. Her goal is to be a part of creating a space where future generations can pursue being lifelong learners without accruing a lifetime of debt.

If you know a successful Gadsden City alumnus who is thriving somewhere around the world, we would love to include them in the Our Titan Family is Going Places campaign.

They can upload a short video (less than two minutes) and a photo here. The video should be an introduction of themselves, a synopsis of what they do in their career, and the coolest work-related experience they’ve had so far.

Make sure the video is between :30 and 2 minutes. The photo should be of just them with a background that reflects what they are doing in their career. They should be sure to use their name (first and last) as the file name for the photo and the video.
Along with the photo and video, they’ll need to complete the short survey here.
