When highlighting the citizens that are making a difference each and every day within their communities, it’s always a priviledge and a honor to recognize them. This month is no different!
They have been dubbed the “first family” of Mansfield, Mike and Karen Gipson. Their roots are strong here, and so is their heart! They, along with their children and grandchildren, work and volunteer
The family’s patriarch is most noted for his interim appointment in 2018. The city he loved so much was hurting, and he stepped up. Long before that, be began serving on the Mansfield School Board. Currently, he serves as the Mansfield Chamber of Commerce President.
Karen Gipson recently retired, and spends as much time as she can with her precious grandchildren.
Mike and Karen have two children, Michael Gipson and Miranda Allison, and five grandchildren, Ashley and Cameron Gipson, Winston, Lincoln and Natalie Allison.
The Gipsons are an essential part of the community, and we proudly feature them as this month’s Hometown Highlight. If you know an ordinary citizen who is doing extraordinary things, please nominate them!
