Many people say they want to see the world. Chase Mason ’02 has done it. The Christ School alumnus traveled to 49 states, 36 different countries, and every continent except Antarctica during a decade and a half with the U.S. Marine Corps and with the U.S. Secret Service.
Mason recently left his government job to focus more on his growing family and the three businesses he owns.
Seeing firsthand the wildlife that inhabits the jungles and Caribbean shorelines of Belize may speak to a boy’s wanderlust.

C-SPAN has been traveling around the Southeast by bus this week, in anticipation that North Carolina and others could be battleground states in the 2020 United States Presidential election.
The TV network not only chose Asheville as a stop on Tuesday, but more specifically Christ School. The Greenies were in the middle of a Headmaster’s Holiday when the bus pulled into campus shortly after lunchtime.
