We are saddened today to learn of the passing of Commissioner Mitchell Chester. He was a great listener and supporter for our MSSAA leaders. For the past few years he was instrumental in organizing planned meetings with MSSAA leadership to hear the concerns and challenges of our membership. He was interested in our collaborations around many school issues including social and emotional learning, MCAS testing, and curriculum standards, to name few.
Commissioner Chester was an annual guest at our Summer Institute for many years. He came to the event with timely topics but also an open mind to listen to our school leaders. His willingness for this give-and-take was a cornerstone of his leadership. Since 2008, his efforts brought about many changes for the schools of the commonwealth. Although bold at times and calming at other times, his efforts were to support excellence in education each and every day.
Our collective thoughts and prayers are with his family during this time. Commissioner Chester will be missed in MA.
