Dr. Karen Hall (Class of 2022) and Assistant Professor at St. Louis University was honored by the Missouri Association of School Administrators (MASA) as an Outstanding Emeritus Educator during their spring conference.

Karen began her career as an educator and academic program administrator in several school districts including Kirkwood, Ritenour, and Pattonville. Dr. Hall retired from the Maplewood Richmond Heights School District in 2021 where she served as Superintendent since 2012. She continues to serve Missouri school districts in her current role as a DESE area coordinator.  

For the past several years, MASA has honored Outstanding Emeritus (retired) Educators identified by each MASA district for their past service.  

Karen said “I am grateful and blessed because I was nominated for the Outstanding Emeritus Educator Award by my colleagues in the Greater St. Louis MASA District. The Missouri Association of School Administrators (MASA) honored me last night for my service to public education. I am one of eight former educators to receive the association’s Outstanding Emeritus Educator Award. MASA presents the award annually to recognize individuals for their length of administrative service, their participation in MASA while an active member, significant accomplishments as a school administrator, and their continued interest in public education since retiring.

I am passionate about educating the children and youth in Missouri. Thank you, friends and colleagues, for recognizing my work for our children.”

Congratulations to Dr. Hall! Your cohort members look forward to celebrating with you during the next session in June.
