Mr. Rhett Ried has been hired to teach Social Studies at Mason High School.  Rhett has a B.A. in Geography/GIS from Central Michigan University and a Post B.A. in Education from Spring Arbor University.  Rhett has taught secondary Social Studies for the past 12 years at Laingsburg Community Schools and prior to teaching worked in Geographic Information Systems.  Rhett is a proud graduate of Mason High School class of 1989 and excited to be a part of the Bulldog family once again.  

Ms. Hilary Schroeder has been hired at Mason High School as a Social Studies teacher. Ms. Schroeder is a MHS graduate (2015) and is also a graduate of Spring Arbor University (2019). She began her career at Fulton Public Schools where she spent two years teaching at the middle and high school levels. Ms. Schroeder is thrilled to return to her community and be surrounded by such a warm and welcoming staff.   When not at work, Ms. Schroeder spends much of her time either with her goldendoodle Lexie, watching the National Women’s Soccer League (Go Reign!), or baking sweet treats. She is best known for her lemon flavored cake balls which have been a fan favorite at the Okemos Home Depot where she has also been known to mix paint. Ms. Schroeder would disappoint her family if she did not give a shout out to M.S.U. by saying “GO GREEN”.
