NADO INSIDER Highlighting BC's Student-Athletes' Success Beyond the Field

ALEX PERRI: English major, soccer player, cyclist, writer, explorer, musician, extraordinary student-athlete.

The commitment and outstanding work of Alex Perri in creating a digital content strategy for Brevard College for her senior project makes her a spotlight Tornado.

What makes Perri an outstanding student-athlete is her hard work to benefit Brevard College.

"My senior project is working with the Office of Communications to develop a digital content strategy for Brevard College," said Perri. "The best definition I have found for that is figuring out a way to standardize and optimize the digital content for all of the departments at the college and ways to create and publish it. The project involves coordinating with different administration staff members and also educating myself about the world of digital content."

She is in process of creating style guidelines, such as brand message, style, tone, and visual standards in order to take a standardized approach to communications.

The use of a digital content strategy created by Perri will be an extremely useful marketing tool for all departments of Brevard College.

Prior to attending BC, Alex graduated from Gulf Coast High School in Naples, Florida. She is an English major with an emphasis in journalism and a minor in Spanish. Alex is a writer for the school newspaper, The Clarion. She is also a four-year letter winner for the women's soccer team. Alex competed as a defender, giving strength to the Tornados' back line. Having a blast at practice is her favorite experience as an athlete. Perri has recently taken an interest in road cycling as well as mountain biking. This will be her first season riding for BC Cycling team.

Her most rewarding experience as a student was her trip abroad to Costa Rica her sophomore year with the Spanish department. She spent three months living in a home stay with Costa Rican host parents in San Jose. She spent her weekdays studying Spanish at the Costa Rican Language Academy, and the weekends traveling around the country and nearby Panama. Her adventures included zip lining, rafting, cliff jumping, and exploring volcanoes and rain forests.

She also got to soak in geothermal hot springs at a resort and see sloths and monkeys at Manuel Antonio National park.

Upon graduation, Perri aspires to join the Peace Corps, travel, and become a journalist for a newspaper. She is most thankful for her team and the friendships she has made in her time with the Tornados.
