He became the sixth general manager in franchise history on June 8, 2006. Moore, a native of Wichita, Kansas, brought an impressive résumé to the Royals in 2006, having previously worked for the Atlanta Braves organization during its run of 13 straight division titles. In 2014, the Royals stormed to 89 victories and qualified for the postseason for the first time in 29 years. Kansas City reeled off eight straight wins to open the playoffs and qualify for the World Series for the first time since 1985. Moore’s tenure in Kansas City has been one of the most successful runs in franchise history as the Royals have boasted nine Rawlings Gold Glove Awards, 13 All-Star Game selections, and a Cy Young Award winner in his first nine seasons. He has received several accolades over the last few months, being named to the Kansas Baseball Hall of Fame and as a Kansan of the Year, while he has also been named Executive of the Year by Major League Baseball (GIBBY Awards) as well as the Kansas City Sports Commission.

Awa r d R e c i p i e n t s THE ALUMNI SERVICE AWARD Michael P. Gallagher Michael P. Gallagher, MBA ’94, has a career that reflects his passion for recognizing achievement across the diverse spectrum of business. In 2002, to honor the millions of business executives and workers worldwide who quietly accomplish innovative and extraordinary things in the workplace every day, Gallagher founded the Stevie® Awards. The name Stevie comes from the Greek name Stefanos, which means “crowned.” Gallagher’s commitment to honoring excellence was sparked during his tenure as vice president of the New York Festivals, organizer of some of the world’s largest international awards competitions for film, television, advertising, and other media. Under his leadership from 1982 to 1988, the New York Festivals significantly expanded its global influence by adding new awards competitions in fields such as radio and print advertising. Aside from his success in the business world, Gallagher has made a point to stay involved at Mason. Since 2009, he has been involved with the School of Business’s Alumni Chapter. He began his journey on the chapter’s board of directors as vice president of events from 2009 to 2010, followed by leading the group as president for the next two years.

Awa r d R e c i p i e n t s THE FACULTY MEMBER OF THE YEAR AWARD William B. Miller William B. Miller, MFA Creative Writing ’87, has taught in the English Department continuously for 30 years, and he has directed the graduate Creative Writing Program for 22 of those years.

His student evaluations have ranked consistently among the highest even in the department’s higher-than-average marks. As director of the graduate Creative Writing Program, he has been instrumental in forming Mason’s BFA in Creative Writing, and in setting up numerous endowment accounts within the George Mason University Foundation to support students in creative writing. Certainly not least among his accomplishments has been shaping the Fall for the Book festival into a vital annual event for the region that also greatly enriches Mason’s campus life and integrates academics, university life, and the university’s important culture of reading all under one tent—often both literally and metaphorically.
