Lights, Camera, Thank You!

The Office of University Relations would like to thank everyone who came out to be part of the Fox 5 event on campus last Friday, Oct. 20. The Washington, D.C., television station featured the University of Mary Washington in its “College Tour” series, filming live on Ball Circle, with morning show anchors Annie Yu and Kevin McCarthy from 7 to 11 a.m.

Special thanks to featured guests President Troy D. Paino, Professor of Historic Preservation Michael Spencer, Professor of Art and Art History Rosemary Jesionowski, Instructional Technology Specialist Lee Skallerup Bessette, Athletic Director Ken Tyler and our very own “Campus Hero,” longtime UMW employee Grace Anne Braxton – who were interviewed on camera.

Special thanks, too, to the Department of Theatre and Dance, and Dining Services, and Sammy D. Eagle and the UMW cheerleaders, who were with us all morning long.

But the pre-Homecoming broadcast could not have worked without help from the students (both Devils and Goats) and staff, faculty and administrators, club members and athletes who showed up to show off their Mary Washington spirit. Go, Eagles!
