George Mason unveiled a new Citizenship Award at the annual University Day Celebration breakfast ceremony held yesterday in the Johnson Center. Nancy Murphy, administrative assistant in University Life, and Carrie Secondo, project manager in University Relations, were named as the first two recipients of this award for being “true advocates for the university and its goals and activities, who participate in a broad range of efforts that improve the university community and who are ‘cheerleaders’ who demonstrate support for projects and events outside their own department.”

Another highlight was Randall Edwards, executive vice president, becoming the first George Mason employee to be honored for 35 years of service with the Commonwealth of Virginia. Edwards came to George Mason in 1988.

More than 200 members of the university community were recognized for their service to George Mason and to the Commonwealth. Karen Rosenblum, vice president for University Life, hosted the event.
