Loved Mason Spirit Summer 2000, particularly Red Pandas (P. 4) and Bobbi Bowman (P. 5). Stunning magazine!
Mason alumna Aundi Moore (BM, '03) was featured in The Mason Spirit, discussing her time at Mason, her career, and achieving her dream of performing with the Metropolitan Opera. Read more: https://cvpa.gmu.edu/news/587396
Excited to announce the publication of my short story "Settling" in MOUNTAINS PILED UPON MOUNTAINS: APPALACHIAN NATURE WRITING IN THE ANTHROPOCENE, a new anthology from West Virginia University Press, edited by Jessica Cory. (Jane Harrington MA TWL 2010)

Did you check your mailbox for the latest edition of The Mason Spirit magazine? Mason alumni principals and teachers are making an impact in school systems all over the region >>https://spirit.gmu.edu/2019/03/guiding-principals/
Apologies for not going further than your cover on the last issue and thinking you made a spelling error in your title featured "Guiding Principals." I see later in the magazine that this was a play on words. I feel a bit embarrassed.
Spelling counts--mistake on front cover of University magazine. "Principal" instead of "principle."
Why is the phrase "GUIDING PRINCIPALS" on the front cover of the Spirit, when it should read "GUIDING PRINCIPLES"? Spelling counts.
How do I go about removing myself from the mailing list? Waste of trees.....
