As Superintendent Kruse stated, "I have a strong passion for Mason ISD. It is more to me than just a job. I have a vested interest in our school system. I have worked here for 23 years and raised two wonderful children in this school system. I can truthfully say there is no other place I would have considered allowing my children to attend school. We have the great fortune of having the best students and most dedicated staff of caring professionals anywhere in the state. Add to that the most supportive parents and community and you have a winning combination."
