Checking In

I was a nurse and worked a bit when we moved to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. I’m in the older-than-65 age group and still keep my license active. I have been thinking about taking a refresher [course]. The nurses of today have it so much easier than we did. I have two beautiful grandchildren, and two of my sons still live in Northern Virginia. When we come back to Northern Virginia, New on spirit.gmu.edu I never miss a chance to see Mason.
Thanks for the memories.

Its a Deal

The spring 2009 issue of Mason Spirit is fantastic— the best issue ever. The coverage of research and scholarship is splendid. If Roger [Stough]’s vision of $250 million in sponsored research by 2014 is realized, I’ll buy him a steak dinner at the top place in Northern Virginia, and I’ll double my annual contribution to the foundation. Keep up the good work!

Vice Provost for Research, 1997–2005

Editor’s Response: George Mason University surpassed $100 million in sponsored research expenditures for fiscal year 2009, which ended June 30. This marks a 25 percent growth compared with 2008 and a 45 percent increase compared with 2007. Stay tuned, Dr. Hill!

Chock Full of Meaning

This is the first time I’ve read an issue of Mason Spirit that I felt was chock full of meaningful, interesting, and relevant information about Mason’s research programs. It’s also the first time since I graduated from my master’s program in 1994 that I’ve felt inspired to donate to the school. Thanks for a fantastic issue.
