#tbt GMU’s Person of the Year 2014

We all remember that Time Magazine awarded the Ebola Fighters their Person of the Year, right?

Well, George Mason President Angel Cabrera recognized Audrey Ferguson, an Ebola fighter who attended GMU, as his Mason Person of the Year. This is what he had to say about Audrey:

I was delighted, and not surprised, that one of our alumni was among the many unsung heroes who “risked, persisted and sacrificed” to save lives.  And I loved the piece of Mason Pride that she found and shared with us from the heart of Liberia.

When Audrey first came to Mason, she intended to study global affairs. Then she decided to pursue nursing and minor in global affairs, a combination not possible at many other institutions. It’s great that Mason enabled her to pursue both interests and helped prepare her for the important work that she is doing in our community and around the world.
