The Mustang Public School Board met on Monday, May 13, 2019 where they approved the hiring of Daryl Williamson to lead the Mustang Education Center for the 2019-2020 school year.
When Principal Kirk Wilson was promoted to the role of Director of Communications for Mustang Public Schools, the District worked quickly to secure his replacement at the Mustang Education Center. Their search took them far and wide, but ultimately, his replacement was found less than a mile away at Centennial Elementary School. Daryl Williamson is currently in his fifth year of service as assistant principal of Centennial Elementary School, but has been a school administrator for over nine years. Prior to 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.
When reached for comment on his new position, Daryl said: “I am super excited, thankful, and blessed to be fortunate enough to receive a principal position in Mustang Public Schools. I am going to dearly miss the families and students of Centennial; I feel that I have grown so close and created so many incredible relationships with our families. However, I am also looking forward to creating and developing these same types of relationships with the parents, families, and caregivers in the MEC family” Williamson will finish out the year at Centennial before moving to his new home at the Mustang Education Center.
