Quinn serves on National Youth Leadership Committee

Alex Quinn makes a “red” phone call at President Reagan’s desk in the Oval Office replica at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Museum.

Alex Quinn, a 2011 Rockford High School graduate, was selected to serve on the National Youth Leadership Committee. This committee participated in the Ronald Reagan Centennial Celebration representing America’s next generation of leaders. Each of these student leaders, young athletes and entertainers is inspired in a personal way by President Reagan’s vision of freedom and the example of his leadership. Together they have earned 18 Olympic medals, 11 NCAA All American selections, five NCAA championships, two certified platinum records, and numerous other awards.

Last August, Quinn was named an inaugural GE-Reagan Foundation Scholar at a special ceremony held at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, Calif. During the visit, he was selected to role-play President Reagan in a dramatic simulation exercise on whether to invade Grenada, as Reagan did more than 20 years ago. Quinn was awarded a book on Ronald Reagan’s life, signed by Nancy Reagan, and a $40,000 scholarship for his studies at Harvard.

GE-Reagan Foundation scholars are among America’s foremost young leaders who use the formative experiences of their youth to lead, serve and pursue a life of purpose and significance, both individually and for their communities.

While at Harvard, Quinn is co-director of Harvard’s Program for International Relations, and volunteers as a coauthor and teacher for an International Relations course taught to Boston area high school students. He is part of select group of Harvard, Oxford and Cambridge students, who will volunteer to teach in China this summer, alongside students from leading Chinese universities.
