2017 Jack Wood Awards for Town Gown Relations announced
May 12, 2017
Jack Wood, former Mayor for the then-town of Fairfax, was the driving force for arranging a campus to be located on land adjacent to the town and deeding it to the university, thus beginning a town-gown relationship for the university.
In his honor, the George Mason University Office of Government and Community Relations presents this university/community-wide awards program to recognize those who demonstrate leadership in fostering mutually beneficial relationships between the university and the community over the past year. This year, five awards were given: Elected Official/Staff, Business/Nonprofit, Faculty/Staff, Student (individual or group) and Partnership Initiative.
