Educator of the Year  

Founder of Vision 2000 Educational Foundation
Dr. Hazel Mahone

Dr. Hazel Mahone began her teaching career in Sissonville, WV, and her college studies at
WV State University. She has taught at all levels of education: Kindergarten through University. She has a B.A. in Elementary Education and English, two Masters Degrees in
Education and Psychology, and a Doctorate in Education Administration. She has worked as a principal, an Assistant Superintendent, and served six years as a Superintendent. That
position earned her the distinction of ecoming the first female Superintendent in Sacramento County.

Just prior to that honor, Dr. Mahone became Deputy Executive Director of the California
School Boards Association (CSBA), where she remained for 6 years. She established the Golden Bell Awards, which are presented annually to schools throughout California with exemplary educational programs.

While her awards are too numerous to list, it is noteworthy that in 1990 she was named
Sacramento's Educator of the Year. This recognition stemmed primarily from her outstanding efforts to improve the educational achievements for children with multiple challenges.

Dr. Mahone coaches and mentors principals at all levels in Sacramento County and currently teaches graduate students at California State University, Sacramento. As a full time Professor, she is proud of the large number of her former students who are now exemplary Principals, Assistant Principals, Superintendents and District Office Personnel.

Dr. Mahone is President and Chief Executive Officer of Vision 2000 Educational Foundation. She created the decade old College Prep Academy where underachieving students are transported each year to the University to study on campus and obtain critical math (ELA) and reading skills while gaining exposure to college living.
