It is indeed a privilege to serve as the new president of the George Mason University Alumni Association. Mason was a wonderful place for me as a student, and I smile when I think about its bright future. The great part of being alumni is that our Mason story continues.
During my two years as president, I will be focused on accomplishing three things that will help alumni create new Mason memories:
- Link alumni with meaningful, convenient, and rewarding volunteer opportunities.
- Establish an unprecedented alumni effort to provide scholarships for Mason students.
- Highlight the 136,000 Mason alumni every chance we get.
As you can see, there is no “our” story without “u.” You can keep the story going by simply making a commitment to tell everyone you encounter, “I graduated from Mason.” Better yet, join me at Homecoming 2011 and renew your connection to the place we all called “home.”
I enjoyed seeing many of you at the second annual Alumni Weekend earlier this month, and I hope you will take advantage of every opportunity to stay connected with Mason.
Finally, you can make a lasting impact at Mason by making sure other students can have a Mason story through your financial support.
With Patriot Pride,
