Year: 2022

Major: Pre-Dental Hygiene

Alexa Gordon graduated Magna Cum Laude with an Associate of Science degree in pre-dental hygiene in fall 2022. A Tennessee Promise and HOPE scholarship student, Gordon was a member of the Student Government Association, as well as Sigma Kappa Delta and Phi Theta Kappa honor societies. Gordon’s mother, Alexandria Adair, is also a Columbia State alum. She plans to take a semester off before transferring to a university to complete her bachelor’s degree to pursue her career in dental hygiene.

“Columbia State helped prepare me for my future by showing me teamwork throughout the clubs that I participated in, how to communicate properly or in a professional manner, and how being involved in clubs helps you,” Gordon said. “I noticed throughout my time at Columbia State that no matter how shy you are, you can always find somewhere that you belong.”
