Lisa Cutshall, technology director for Madison Consolidated Schools, was named the 2012 Technology Coordinator of the Year by Hoosier Education Computer Coordinators.

The organization honors one individual in K-12 education each year for showing commitment and leadership through technology for students and staff. Superintendent Ginger Studebaker-Bolinger nominated Cutshall for the recognition.

She said Cutshall has been instrumental in establishing new technology initiatives, such as the district's new student iPad program that launched this school year.

"Lisa Cutshall is a visionary leader who brought one-to-one technology to Madison Consolidated Schools," Bolinger said in a news release.

"She is on the cutting edge in her field and an asset to our district. Lisa combines the rare talent of an outstanding educator with the technical skills necessary for technology integration. We are blessed to have her in our schools."

Cutshall graduated from Johnson Bible College in Knoxville, Tenn. She holds a bachelor's degree in interdisciplinary studies and a master's degree in educational technology.

She has served as a science teacher and as director of technology for Madison Consolidated Schools.

Cutshall is married to Howard R. Cutshall. They live in Madison with their two children, Benjamin and Aleah.
