May 22, 2020 was a day to remember as an entire community came together to help Madison High School celebrate 115 graduating seniors. Staff members arrived early in the morning to set up for the graduation event at Land of Illusion. Commencement would begin at 5:30 pm with a strategic plan and safety measures in place and by 9 pm another class of Mohawks were officially graduates of Madison High School.
On March 12, 2020 Governor DeWine announced that all Ohio school buildings would close for a period of several weeks due to the COVID-19 health crisis. Ultimately, all in-person school district activities, including in-school instruction, sports, arts programming, and other enrichment opportunities would be cancelled for the remainder of the school year. Madison Local Schools and the entire Butler Community chose to rise above adversity and have continued to achieve excellence without pause.
With change comes new opportunities! While we wish some well in their retirement, we are excited to announce the following internal promotions in the Madison Local School District. We congratulate and welcome familiar faces as they take on new positions throughout the district. Read about their journeys and future goals as Chris Cooper says goodbye to her position as Principal at Madison Middle School, Kari Hunter becomes a bonafide Mohawk, Valerie Jones steps out of the classroom, and Charity Smith steps into her new leadership role.
