Being a proud member of the first class to go through all four years of high school at Gadsden City might have been one of the things that sparked James Kelley’s passion for blazing new trails. James earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in marketing from the University of Alabama and is currently pursuing his MBA there as well. James has filled his summers with seven trips to North America, South America, Africa, Asia, and Europe leading exploration travel trips. Always up for an adventure and a challenge, James has climbed Mount Kilimanjaro and worked for Lululemon and as a personal trainer in a boxing gym. His ultimate goal is to help others realize life is about experiences and connections, and the importance of making the most of every minute.

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.
