My name is Mr. Mason and I am the College and Career Coordinator for North Atlanta High School. I am extremely excited to join this wonderful community and assist you in reaching your goals. Thank you for the opportunity of allowing me to serve your school, students, and community. I come from the great state of New York, born and raised in the city of Syracuse—Go Orange! I attended G.W. Fowler High School where I served as Vice-President of SGA, President of DECA, Director of the Gospel Choir, and two time regional playwright winner for the NAACP ACT-SO competition. After high school, I attended Colgate University in Hamilton, NY and graduated in 2006 with a double major in Religion and Africana Studies. While at Colgate, I served as Elections Commissioner for SGA, was a Resident Advisor, Scribe for the BROTHERS organization, President of the African American Student Alliance, and General Manager and Producer of the Urban Theatre Company. Upon completing Colgate, I moved to Atlanta, GA and attended Emory University Candler School of Theology and graduated in 2009 with a Masters of Divinity. I am currently a doctoral student at Duke Divinity School in Durham, NC with a scheduled graduate date of May 2017. My research focuses on Hip-Hop culture and its role in identity formation in urban teenagers. My desire is to see students not only attend college but succeed while in college. I focus on students understanding the college process and exposing them to a variety of choice colleges and universities.
