Intern Alex Harrison
NAME

Bruce Alexander “Alex” Harrison

SCHOOL

Virginia Polytechnic Institute

EXPECTED GRADUATION

May of 2022

HOBBIES

One of my favorite interests outside of school is watching or playing sports, I support all the sports teams in Washington D.C., and also enjoy playing soccer as a hobby on the weekends.

WHY CONSTRUCTION?

I have always had an interest in construction, seeing a project transition from just an idea, into a full-on design, and then finally into a finished product has always enamored me. I remember when I was little, my mother would drive me down to a construction site where a new Kroger was being built, and I would watch the workers and machines for hours.

CAREER GOAL

Currently, I am unsure of my long term career goals, but I do know I am interested in owning my own business one day.
