Mark Beinborn, head coach of Augustana’s women’s basketball team, called Alexis Jones  ’20 “a blessing to the women’s basketball program and to Augustana College.” A skilled leader on the basketball court, Jones majored in political science and French while at Augustana.

“As much as she accomplished through her hard work and talents, she impacted everyone she came across even more because of her heart,” Beinborn said. “This campus was made better because of Alexis.”

Now an Iowa College of Law student, Jones continues to make a difference. She has immersed herself in promoting diversity and supporting underrepresented law students.

“Alexis constantly thinks about ways to improve the wider community inside Boyd Law Building, across Iowa, and even across the whole country,” said Iowa Law Professor Emily Hughes. “She thinks broadly about building bridges, listens to different voices and considers multiple viewpoints — skills that will be incredibly useful to her no matter what kind of law she wants to do.”
