LEADING WITH A SMILE

BY NAILAH HERBERT

The Principal of Fulton Leadership Academy (FLA), Mr. Nash Alexander III, constructs an invaluable leadership foundation for his scholars. Principal Alexander is committed to guiding the young men to embrace the leadership role in all aspects of life.

 

Principal Alexander has been an educator for nearly three decades, with almost two decades of experience serving as a principal in schools within the metro-Atlanta area. He joined FLA's staff as the head principal in the academic school year of 2018-2019. 

 

His leadership abilities have greatly influenced scholars to act with integrity, confidence, and a keen sense of self-awareness. Likewise, those same scholars hold their peers accountable for their performance and behavior, upholding the final statement of the FLA creed, "I am my brother's keeper."

 

"Our scholars are operating from this knowledge of expecting excellence from themselves and holding one another accountable," said Principal Alexander. "We consistently graduate scholars who are achieving their goals."

 

Principal Alexander takes pride in organizing structures and procedures to educate and develop young men. In his years of experience, Principal Alexander has often seen too many young men drive down the road of self-destruction. As an effective leader, he aims to direct scholars to find their purpose and lead without limitation on their unique talents and abilities.

 

"I believe the work that I am doing is beyond the face value of being a principal. I believe that I am doing spiritual work," said Principal Alexander. "It is my responsibility to ensure that we develop systems to give the next generation of scholars and educators a solid platform to continue to build upon."

 

As FLA continues to nourish each scholar's mind and heart, Principal Alexander strongly encourages community and parental involvement as FLA endeavors to become a rising pillar in Fulton County.
