Alexander’s Print Advantage Scholarship
In 1979 Jeff Alexander founded a retail copy center in Provo. He later opened branches in Orem and Salt Lake City. Eventually, the business evolved into digital commercial printing, and Alexander built a production center in Lindon, Utah, to house Alexander’s Print Advantage.
Alexander first became involved with Utah Valley University during his 16 years of service in the Utah House of Representatives. “I saw a really big need for the school because of all the growth in the valley and the fact that Brigham Young University couldn’t handle all of the students from the area,” said Alexander. He wanted to see UVU continue to have the resources it needed in order to grow and meet the higher education needs of Utah Valley’s children.
Alexander and Doyle Mortimer, senior vice president at Alexander’s Print Advantage, were both interested in seeing UVU succeed, so they established the Alexander’s Print Advantage Scholarship in 2011 to support full-time sophomore, junior, and senior students. Alexander is also a new member of the UVU National Presidential Advisory Board, and Mortimer has served on UVU’s Board of Trustees. “We just had a desire to be involved and help in any way we could,” said Alexander.
