MASON CITY – The Mason City Community School District Board of Education has named Pat Hamilton as the district’s next superintendent.

Hamilton currently serves as director of student services in the Spencer Community Schools, where he has directed both special education and English language learner programs. He also implemented classroom-based mental health supports for students and served as homeless student liaison, Title IX coordinator, and equity coordinator for the district.

Previously, Hamilton was Spencer’s middle school principal. Under his leadership, the school received three STEM Excellence Awards and was named a National Blue Ribbon School. He began his career in education as a middle school social studies teacher in the Algona Community Schools.

Hamilton holds a master’s degree in educational leadership from Southwest Minnesota State University and a bachelor’s degree in history education from the University of Northern Iowa. He also received a specialist degree to serve as a superintendent from UNI.

The Mason City School Board said, “We are pleased to welcome Pat Hamilton as the next superintendent of Mason City Community School District. After a thorough search for applicants facilitated by the excellent work of Grundmeyer Leader Services, we were pleased to have 3 exceptional finalists for the position. It is a testament to the quality of our applicants that we know that our district would have been in good hands with any of the three. Mr. Hamilton exceeds the qualifications identified by the board through the stakeholder survey. At the end of the process, Mr. Hamilton’s unique set of skills will allow us to continue to work toward our goal of being the center for academic excellence in North Iowa while at the same time being a place where all students feel welcomed, supported, and motivated in their growth toward their individual goals. We believe that his desire to make our schools the center of our community by inviting community members to be active participants in education will make him an asset to not only our schools but also our strong community.”

The Board appreciates the time and effort put forth in the recruitment and interview process by members of our school, student body, and community at large.

The Board of Education has been working with Grundmeyer Leader Services to conduct the superintendent search. The board and district leadership conducted a first round of screening interviews on February 10 and held final interviews with three finalists on Tuesday, February 22.

Hamilton will officially begin leading the Mason City Community School District on July 1, 2022.
