The Madison-Plains Board of Education honored the late Mason Cordell with a moment of silence at the board’s July 23 meeting.
Cordell died on July 18 after a motocross accident. He graduated from Madison-Plains High School in May and was active in the community. He participated on the high school football team, Future Farmers of America chapter and the power-lifting team.
“Mason was a special young man,” said Board President Mark Mason. “The Madison-Plains community was blessed to have a part of him.”
The board is working to provide grief counselors for students and community members. A scholarship fund is to be set up in Cordell’s name.
Seed Consultants donated $10,000 to Madison-Plains High School’s athletics department for a new scorers table.
“Seed Consultants has been incredibly good to Madison-Plains,” said Mason, “We appreciate all of the hard work that went into getting that donation.”
Micheal English took the oath of office as a newly appointed member of the Madison-Plains school board. He will serve through Dec. 31, 2019.
