I just signed the “Education Over Indoctrination PledgeREAD HERE.


Melissa Mason

For New Hanover County School Board

In recent years, we have seen political division seep into our schools. Politicians have increased the indoctrination of our students and decreased focus on kids’ failing academics and escalating behavior issues. Our students and our community both deserve better. Let’s eliminate the politics and focus on what matters most: the safety of our children, our rights as parents, and the integrity of our school leadership.


Parental Rights

Parental sovereignty has been slowly eroded by the board and the State. I can and will fight back for the rights of parents.

Child Safety

There’s an increase in bullying and violence in our schools. Until our schools are safe, our children will not reach their full potential.

Integrity & Honesty

As the practices of school district’s administration come to light, we see deception in their communication. Trust needs to be re-established.


Why Vote for Me

When considering where you should invest your vote, I believe there are five areas that you should assess: experience, faith, heart, strength, and investment. My experience includes thirteen years educating school age students and 4 years educating college level students. My faith is the long standing foundation by which all of my decisions are made. My heart for families is reflected in my service to the community within my church’s children’s ministry. 

The Pledge

I recently signed a pledge to rid our school district of policies and plans that undermine parental rights and endanger our children. I encourage other GOP candidates to sign onto this pledge. Read the pledge here

Our Schools Shape the Future for Our Families and the Community.

Our children are the next generation of leaders in our community. What they learn today impacts our tomorrow; however the current academic levels in our schools don’t reflect a prepared student body. My background in the education of the deaf brings a unique perspective on how we can best reach all children, as we work together to solve present and future challenges.

Medical Tyranny in New Hanover County Schools

Medical Tyranny in New Hanover County Schools

Last week, New Hanover County’s school board continued to lack common sense. The district disclosed they plan to make their disastrous COVID policy be the school system’s standard operating procedure for all future disease threats. This policy states medical advice won’t be sought from licensed physicians, but instead from county employees with public medicine business degrees.

A Message for My Neighbors

Three years ago, my husband and I were involved in a motorcycle accident and I watched this community rally support for my family.

It’s now my turn to rally and fight for the highest standard for our teachers, families, and community members. This generation of students will be our community leaders and service providers in the near future. Will the education that was provided to them be enough to produce independent and contributing citizens? I’ll fight to ensure our kids are prepared for life as an adult.

I ask you to stand with me as I strive for consistent and honest leadership, better academic standards, safer school environments, and more parental involvement.
