💚💛🏆

Jerod M. Parker, BS Electrical Engineering ’97, began his George Mason University journey in the fall semester of 1993 as one of 11 University Scholar award recipients that year. Once Parker completed his BS in electrical engineering in 1997, the MITRE Corporation selected him to receive the GEM Fellowship, which allowed him to continue his studies at Syracuse University. After the one-year graduate program, Parker returned to Northern Virginia and to MITRE as a full-time employee.

Over the years, Parker’s work at MITRE has centered around lab design and management, using skills he first developed as the computer lab manager for the original University Scholars Center in the Fairfax Campus’s East Building. Parker has worked on innovative projects while at MITRE, including one effort that received two U. S. patents and another involving the design of an entire lab floor in MITRE’s newest building on its McLean, Virginia, campus.

Although he is now in his 24th year with MITRE, Parker has started shifting his focus to the next phase of his life: retirement. In doing so, Parker is sharing his experiences and knowledge with his coworkers and with friends outside of MITRE to help them better prepare for their own lives beyond their working years. Parker lives in Fairfax with his wife, Tennille (BS Government and Politics ’97), and two daughters.

Once the pandemic shut down theaters, Bernfeld switched industries to advertising and became a project manager for Oliver Agency.

In 2021, Bernfeld moved back to Virginia and later left advertising to become a full-time freelance musician.

Last week we featured an image of George Mason University's former mascot, Gunston. He received a ton of interest, so we asked him if it would be ok to post another one. He nodded his head and told us to "post away", so here is this week's Gunston feature. It comes from the 2005 George Mason Yearbook, GMView. He appears to be hanging out somewhere in the Johnson Center. He did not remember it much when we asked him about it but, judging from the smile on his fuzzy green face, he must have been having a good time.

Previously, Godlewski worked for almost a decade at the Pentagon after beginning her financial career supporting a microlending initiative in rural India.

Godlewski earned a bachelor of arts in integrative studies from George Mason University. She was a national security fellow with the U.S. Air Force’s Air War College and has a certificate in public treasury management from the National Institute of Public Finance and Pepperdine School of Management.

Here’s a blast from the past. Most George Mason University students know The Patriot as Mason’s sports mascot, but from 1996 until 2009 we were represented by a 7-foot-tall fuzzy green creature named Gunston. Here he is in the fall of 1996 getting students in the Quad hyped for the upcoming Men’s and Women’s Basketball seasons. Gunston, now retired, is living in SCRC where he is an honorary staff member.
