HHS Community, It is bittersweet that I announce that I will be leaving Herrin High School at the end of the school year. I was hired recently as the new Superintendent/Principal of Giant City School in Carbondale. As some know, I attended Carbondale schools, Unity Point and District 95, for my elementary years before my family moved to Herrin. The opportunity to return to my childhood community and stretch myself beyond my current position was a challenge I needed to seize. My twenty-five years as an educator and student with Herrin Unit #4 always will be a part of me. I will cherish the relationships that I have built with the students, parents, faculty, staff, and community of Herrin. Please follow the link below to find the vacancy notice for my position, and share with any who may be interested: https://bit.ly/hhsap2022 Yours respectfully, Mr. Mason #herrintigerpride
