Madison County Principal Receives Top Honor

Amy Mason, the Principal at Madison County Elementary School, was surprised with the announcement recently at her school.. Her superintendent, Mr. Allen Perkins, told her he needed to meet with her regarding a school issue.

It was a school issue. It was to allow officials from the National Association of Elementary School Principals an opportunity to present Ms. Mason with the Alabama National Distinguished Principal Award. The Alabama Association of Elementary School Administrators is an affiliate association of the Council for Leaders in Alabama Schools

With more than 20 years in education, Mason earned her bachelor's degree in Elementary Education at Purdue University in Indiana and taught in Arizona, Indiana, and Virginia before moving to Maryland. She received her master's degree in Administration and Supervision from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland.

She has been with the Madison County School System since 2015.

Mason’s work has also been published at the national level in Edsurge and Principal Magazine. She has also been a featured guest on the Trauma Informed Educator Network podcast.

Madison County School Superintendent Allen Perkins summed Mason in these words; “She’s always looking for opportunities to serve. Always looking for opportunities to build others up and to make others better. She is one of those types of people you want on your team. We are so proud of Ms. Mason.”
