The Mustang Public School Board has approved the hiring of Daryl Williamson to lead the Mustang Education Center for the 2019-20 school year.
After former Principal Kirk Wilson was promoted to the role of director of communications for Mustang Public Schools, the district sought a successor at the Mustang Education Center.
Williamson is in his fifth year of service as assistant principal of Centennial Elementary School, and has been a school administrator for over nine years. Before Mustang, Daryl served as an administrator in the Crooked Oak, Hugo and Yukon school districts after teaching and coaching in Texas and Oklahoma. He and his wife, Suni, who teaches at Canadian Valley Career Tech in El Reno, have two children who attend Mustang Public Schools.
“I am super excited, thankful and blessed to be fortunate enough to receive a principal position in Mustang Public Schools,” Williamson said. He will finish out the year at Centennial before moving to his new position.
The Mustang Education Center houses a half-day pre-K program for 3- and 4-year-olds and an alternative education program for high school students. The former nursing facility was bought by the school district from a federal housing department for $10 and remodeled for its current use. The building serves more than 200 students on a daily basis and also provides office space for the district test coordinator.
