March 24 Is George Mason University Day in Fairfax County

The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors has proclaimed Friday, March 24, as George Mason University Day in the county. Chairman Gerald Connolly and other members of the board will hold a ceremony at 12:30 p.m. Friday in the Forum of the Government Center, 12000 Government Center Parkway, Fairfax.

Connolly will present George Mason President Alan Merten with a proclamation in recognition of the men’s basketball team’s outstanding performance in the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament. In the first two rounds, the Patriots beat Michigan State University — a Final Four team last year — and defending national champion University of North Carolina. The team next plays Witchita State University in the round of 16 Friday at 7:30 p.m. at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C.

“With its entrance into the Sweet 16, George Mason University has come into its own,” said Connolly. “It is now an institution of academic excellence and athletic prowess. We are very proud of their accomplishments. They are a credit to the Fairfax County community, and we wish the Patriots continued success.”
