Fox has been part of the Mason community for a number of years, first as a student, then as an instructor of biology, and now as assistant dean, a position she has held for the past four years. Her participation in events such as Orientation, Welcome Week, and Convocation, in addition to her work with minority high school students in the Role Models and Leaders Program of the Center for Excellence, were examples showing “her generosity of spirit and willingness to donate her time and talent to George Mason University.”

The Citizenship Award recognizes an individual who is a true advocate for the university, its goals and activities, and who reaches outside the realm of his or her assigned job duties to participate in broad efforts that improve the university community.

A record 386 employees with 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, and 35 years of service with the Commonwealth of Virginia were eligible for service awards this year.
