An Unexpected Compliment

Today’s Sports Journalism class was for the unexpected.  Our visiting speaker was Maureen Nasser AD of Communications here at George Mason University.  The topic was professionalism, I felt under dressed for the topic in my jeans and ragged sweat shirt.

Ms. Nasser discussed her jobs before working GMU, her ventures with the Washington Wizards as a PR personnel. She talked about how her professionalism progressed as well as decreased as she furthered her career. 

But the most surprising comment of the day was when Maureen mentioned a student in the class as being a perfect example of professionalism.

“Tyler here, is one of the most professional students as a broadcaster”, said Nasser.

It was a shock, I had no idea that people were actually noticing the many ties and slacks I had gone through over the course of the basketball season.  It was satisfying to know that I had been doing the right thing, as well as hear it from someone who controls my job.
