“Serving others has always been a passion of mine and I will always make service over self a priority,” says Corey Alexander, Nashville’s Volunteer of the Month for October. This generous, giving young professional started as a young athlete, became a two-sport athlete at the University of Tennessee Knoxville, volunteered for a variety of nonprofits and discovered his joy of serving young people and helping them achieve their goals. In response to that, he founded the 501c3 nonprofit College Bound Athletics (CBA) where they help young athletes and their families take the right steps to achieve collegiate goals. “I feel that we all have a duty to give back to others who may be in need or who are less fortunate than we are.”
Sports are part of who Corey is at his core, and he continues his passion as an adult by coaching young people and weight lifting. He also lives in Nashville, works as the CFO of Ross Behavioral Group, and lives with his wife and two dogs named Blue and Bailey.
Corey gives back in areas outside of sports throughout our community and the world. Locally he has volunteered with the American Red Cross Nashville Area, Habitat of Greater Nashville, the Ross Center Foundation for Mental Health, the Middle Tennessee Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and The Frist Arts Museum where he serves on the board. After his being named an upcoming Nashville’s Volunteer of the Month, he began serving on the board of Doing Good where he helps this entrepreneurial nonprofit achieve its goals.
Globally Corey and his wife serve on mission trips to Kenya through Cross Point Church. “There is always someone in need, and God gave me hands to work and heart to help.”
