Ms. Cawley attended the University of Rhode Island and graduated with honors with her B.A. in Philosophy and Political Science as of May 2019. Ms. Cawley is most excited to hear student's individual stories and identify their best match & fit schools. Her biggest piece of advice is “reflect upon the things in life that motivate and excite you— it makes choosing a college or any post-graduation path much easier!"

My name is Dr. 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. Dr. Mason received his Doctor of Ministry degree in May 2017 from Duke University Divinity School in Durham, NC. His 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.
