Today, the Mason Public Schools Foundation (MPSF) announced donations of $75,000 to Mason Public Schools' administrators and principals for programs across the district.

The MPSF serves as a conduit to raise and direct community contributions toward expanding opportunities for learning at Mason Public Schools. This support comes from the community during the foundation's two flagship events. In 2022,  MPSF held its Commercial Bank Red Carpet Gala on April 23 and the Commercial Bank 5K on May 6.

The MPSF recognizes that the quality of education available to students is an essential factor in maintaining a strong community and creative productive, successful citizens. This investment in our youth, today, will create a better tomorrow for our community, our nation, and our world.

With that, the MPSF was pleased to present the $75,000 in donations to the Mason Public Schools on Monday, August 22nd. Mason High School and Mason Middle School each received $12,500. Harvey Education Center, Alaiedon Elementary, Steele Elementary, North Aurelius Elementary and Mason Special Education each received $10,000. This support to our schools was made possible because of the incredible generosity and support of local residents, businesses, and community organizations. Without their contributions the MPSF could not have made this significant donation to the schools.

For the 2022-2023 school year the MPSF is led by Barb Byrum as the Foundation's President, Melissa Nay as Vice President, Kyle Wright as Treasurer, and Alec Findlay as Secretary. The next Red Carpet Gala will be held on March 11, 2023 and the 5K will be held on May 5, 2023.
