An Interview with The Founders Society member Julian Gordon, Class of 2006

Question 1: Can you tell us a little bit about what your career and personal life looks like these days? I work as a Supervisor for a food distribution company. I have a wife and 2 children (daughter and son), and a dog. As a proud University of Florida graduate, I am also a big Gator sports fan.

Question 2: Why did you choose to support the AoIT Alumni Association? I choose to support the Association because I want to give back to the place I called home for 4 years and shaped me into the person that I am today.

Question 3: Looking back, what did you enjoy most about Crooms AoIT? I enjoyed the laptops and smaller classes.

Question 4: What does the next 3-5 years look like for you? You can never know what the future holds but I do know I'll be watching my two kids grow and eventually transition into school. Work wise I'm going to continue to try growing within my company.

Any advice you would give to current Croomies?Enjoy these years of high school and your years in college if you chose to go. You might think certain situations are a big deal now but trust me - later on in life - you will wish the problems you have now are the only problems in your life. If you plan to go to college make sure you develop good study habits now in high school because there are numerous distractions and less parental control when you are in college.
