My family (husband Scott and three boys) moved to Mason in 2011. We love Mason Schools and the community and believe it’s a great place to raise a family. As a stay at home mom I consider it my full-time job to get as involved as possible. I have supported the schools through the classroom, the PTO, and the MSF since moving here. I served as PTO president at Western Row and have held various PTO Board positions at all the other buildings. I enjoy reading, cooking, rollerblading, and hanging out with my boys (9th grader, 5th grader and Kindergartener).

The Mason Schools Foundation was founded 10 years ago by district leaders and committed community members who believed a successful public school system should be the cornerstone of our community. The concept of our founders and initial board set in motion MSF’s vision to help take students and staff above and beyond what the district can provide with tax payer funds. Mindy is honored to have served alongside men and women on the MSF board since its inception and proud of the collective efforts that allows MSF to give back to our schools.
Before moving to Mason 10 years ago, Nathalie and her husband moved every few years, they are thrilled to have now settled down in Mason! As Nathalie’s three kids got older and she had more time to volunteer in the community she wanted to find a way to give back and support the wonderful schools her kids are attending. Most years, Nathalie’s kids were in three different buildings and she wanted to support Mason City Schools as a whole. Once she heard about the Mason Schools Foundation and about all of the wonderful ways MSF supports our schools, Nathalie knew it would be a great fit for her family. Nathalie loves to travel and is always looking for her families next adventure. Her family also travels to Switzerland frequently to visit Nathalie’s parents.
Raquel and her husband were born and raised in Mexico and have lived in 2 different countries. They love raising their family in Mason. They believe education is the best gift to children and still get surprised with all of the things Mason City Schools has to offer to our children!
