Alex won back-to-back Top Advocate Awards in the T. Gerald Treece Summer Academy Tournament. He was selected to be the first team Captain in South Texas’ history and went on to win a regional championship in the ABA Labor & Employment Law Mock Trial Tournament. In his final semester, Alex was presented with the “Heart of South Texas Award” by T. Gerald Treece.
