Ever since I “graduated” from being George Mason University’s mascot, my life has been full of excitement and fulfillment. With the help of Mason’s Office of Community Relations, a unit of University Relations, I had a makeover and became a community ambassador, teaching schoolchildren about sustainability.

The Go Green with Gunston Program, I am proud to say, is the result of some wonderful partnerships. One partnership is with the National Energy Education Development Project, which helped develop our innovative and interactive environmental-education program.

Another great partnership we have is with the Fairfax County Office for Children, which manages the School Age Child Care (SACC) Program, where, with my partner, Mason, I teach children in kindergarten through third grade about, well, going green. That partnership, in fact, earned us the 2010 Achievement Award from the National Association of Counties.
