On April 26, The George Mason University Alumni Association hosted its annual Celebration of Distinction dinner and award reception. The Celebration of Distinction event recognizes a distinguished alum from each of Mason’s academic units. Each year, the College of Visual and Performing Arts awards the Thomas W.
