No. Putting up 17 wins and counting in his first year as a head coach ever has convinced me that MoJo has earned the job. Since 1981, only Jarvis and Penders were able to win that many games in their first year at GW and they both had already taken multiple teams to the NCAA tournament. 

CNN's Athena Jones visited GW's Women's Leadership Program to emphasize the importance of chasing opportunity to broaden personal experience and knowledge. At GW, industry leaders frequently visit classrooms to educate students on making the most of their skills and knowledge after they graduate.

On April 30, 1789, George Washington, standing on the balcony of Federal Hall on Wall Street in New York, took his oath of office as the first President of the United States.

George Washington was born on February 22, 1732, at his family’s plantation on Pope’s Creek in Westmoreland County, in the British colony of Virginia , to Augustine Washington (1694-1743) and his second wife, Mary Ball Washington (1708-89). George, the eldest of Augustine and Mary Washington’s six children, spent much of his childhood at Ferry Farm, a plantation near Fredericksburg, Virginia. After Washington’s father died when he was 11, it’s likely he helped him mother manage the plantation.

Washington was generally reserved and somewhat taciturn, yet he had a strong presence among company. He made speeches and announcements when required, but he was not known as an orator or a debater. He was taller than most of his contemporaries; accounts of his height vary from 6 ft (1. 83 m) to 6 ft 3. 5 in (1. 92 m) tall, and he weighed between 210–220 pounds as an adult. He had wide hips, a slim waist, a broad chest, narrow shoulders, muscular thighs, and exceptionally large hands, and he was widely known for his great strength—particularly in his long arms. He had piercing grey-blue eyes, fair skin, and light reddish-brown hair, although he wore his hair powdered in the fashion of the day. He had a rugged and dominating presence which garnered respect from his male peers. However, he suffered frequently from severe tooth decay, and ultimately lost all his teeth but one. He had several sets of false teeth made which he went through during his presidency—none of which were made of wood, contrary to common lore. These dental problems left him in constant pain for which he took laudanum. As a public figure, he demanded that his dentist keep his dental care absolutely private.
