Young alumni making their mark

Turns out St. George's has not one but two alumni on Forbes magazine's prestigious "30 Under 30" list. Will Mason '08 also earned a coveted spot on the list, which recognizes young professionals in a number of industries. Will, who co-founded UploadVR Inc., made the list in the media category. Forbes editors praised Will and his business partner for their cutting-edge work in helping to grow and support the virtual- and alternate-reality industries. "VR is no longer just for the tech savvy," the editors noted. "[UploadVR is] focused on media, coworking and education. Along with its online publication, UploadVR also runs an incubation space at its headquarters in San Francisco, where more than 40 companies operate and collaborate. Editors also noted, "Thousands of people take part in its online education program — partnered with Google, HTC and Udacity."

Will joins another Dragon on the Forbes list: Caroline Guenther '10, who made the list in the manufacturing and industry category.

There's magic in the air as the cast of the winter musical is hard at work preparing for performances early next month. This year's show is "A Very Potter Winter Musical," which follows Harry, Ron and Hermione as they take on Lord Voldemort once more.

The show was created by University of Michigan pals Darren Criss (of "Glee" fame) and A.J. Holmes, who wrote the music and lyrics and Matt Lang, Nick Lang and Brian Holden, who wrote the script. St. George's version of the musical will be performed for students, faculty and staff on March 2 and 3. All are invited to the show on Saturday, March 4, at 7 p.m. Daisy Mayer '17 stars as Harry. Learn more about the musical and view a complete cast list on our website.
