MADE Chamber Recognizes Mason Schools LeadersMason City Schools’ top educational leaders were honored by the business community at the 2017 Mason Deerfield Chamber Gems of Excellence Awards Night.
Chief Innovation Officer Jonathan Cooper received both the Excellence in Education and Rising Star Awards.
MADE Chamber CEO Sherry Taylor noted, “[Cooper] is a humble, hungry leader working everyday to serve our learners. He finds his energy and inspiration from his family of four beautiful children, his amazing wife, and his faith. He sees the importance of the chamber for the catalytic opportunities it will provide through its function as a community architect building pathways for future opportunities to maximize local talent. He hopes leaders from the community shine a light on what really matters. His persona is organic, authentic, creative, strong, and meaningful.  And his runner’s reflection on Twitter every morning is truly an inspiration.”

MCS Superintendent Dr. Gail Kist-Kline was chosen as the Pink Diamond of the Year.
Taylor commended Kist-Kline for “her passion for empowering women in leadership. She has taken a role in the chamber’s initiative to encourage, inspire, and develop women as they grow as business and community leaders. She is a strategic risk-taker and has even run with the bulls with her son Quinn while on vacation in Spain. Her strength is growing leadership capacity and she believes it is her responsibility to recognize and nurture top talent so they can achieve their dreams and make our community an even better place. She radiates growing greatness together.” Watch the 2017 Pink Diamond Video.
