Recognizing the Partnership between Leadership Fairfax and George Mason University

Madame Chairman:

We are fortunate that many wonderful and unique partnerships have been formed between Fairfax County and other local public and private entities. One such union that deserves to be highlighted is Leadership Fairfax’s collaboration with George Mason University’s Honors College.

Three years ago, under the SERVEFairfax umbrella, a partnership with George Mason’s Honors College began where Leadership Fairfax alumni guide Honor College student teams in planning and executing community service projects during their fall and spring semester.  Projects are submitted to Leadership Fairfax to be used in their Emerging Leaders Institute classes, but each year they receive more projects than they can cover. The Honors College students take on some of these ‘left over’ projects, learning project management and leadership skills while getting engaged in community service.  This initiative, Honors College Connects, is a win/win for everybody – Mason, the benefiting nonprofit, Leadership Fairfax and most importantly, the community. 

Therefore Madame Chairman, in order to honor the hardworking George Mason University students and Leadership Fairfax alumni who provide their time and expertise, I move that the Board of Supervisors invite representatives from Leadership Fairfax and George Mason to come before the Board to be formally recognized at a future meeting.
