Mentors Available Through College Tennis Alumni Network

Jeff Morrison realizes how fortunate he was to have coaches and teammates that were influential in helping him transition from tennis into the working world.

The former Florida All-American and 1999 NCAA singles champion wants to give back to other young college players.

Morrison jumped at the chance to become a mentor as part of the Intercollegiate Tennis Association’s College Tennis Alumni Network. The network, which launched last week, was created to help college tennis alumni connect, build an advocate base for college tennis and create a support system for current college players as they prepare to graduate.

Morrison, 40, is the CEO of C.I. Thornburg Company, which supplies major infrastructure for water and wastewater services.

“I am a big fan of coaching and learning and I think this gives me the opportunity to do that with others that need it,” said Morrison, a father of two who lives in Lexington, Kentucky. “So often, 18, 19 and 20-year olds kids don’t really know what they want to do, and it’s good to have somebody to lean on that has kind of been through the ropes and made some mistakes along the way and can learn from that.”
