Pawned: At the Time Well Spent Conference's human chess match February 5, white pawn Jen Tracy (SMG'01) (second from right) eliminates black pawn Mary Ellen Osburn, operations coordinator for the George Sherman Union -- but not without some resistance. Actually, Osburn had no choice: two players with an actual chess board called out the moves. Other players include (from left) Craig Mack, director of orientation and off-campus services, Leila Saad, director of the University Resource Center, West Campus Residential Life Director Denise Burford, and (far right) Tracy's teammate and fellow Alpha Phi sorority sister Tara Shaffer (COM'00).
