The principal of Fulton Leadership Academy (FLA), Nash Alexander III, constructs an invaluable leadership foundation for his scholars. He is committed to guiding young men to embrace leadership roles in all aspects of life.
Alexander has been an educator for nearly three decades, with almost two decades of experience serving as principal at metro-Atlanta area schools. He joined FLA's staff as the head principal in academic school year 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 Alexander. "We consistently graduate scholars who are achieving their goals."
Alexander takes pride in organizing structures and procedures to educate and develop young men. In his years of experience, he has 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 using 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 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, Alexander strongly encourages community and parental involvement as FLA endeavors to become a rising pillar in Fulton County.
