Harrison returns as principal of Pioneer
By RODNEY D. BOAM
Wynn Costley, principal of Pioneer Elementary, is saying goodbye to the Preston School District after 30 years. And Preston Junior High Principal Lance Harrison is returning to the helm of Pioneer after six years at the junior high.
Costley has seen a lot of changes over the past three decades with the district. He’s seen the beginnings of Franklin County High School, which he has been involved with as principal.
Wynn and his wife, Cecelie, won’t be sitting in the rocking chair waiting for something to happen. The two are headed to China to teach English.
“We are going to teach college level English in China, just outside of Hong Kong. It is a BYU program. We will not be doing missionary work. It’s more of a humanitarian service BYU has set up with the Chinese government,” Wynn said. “We will be in the same city Dr. Jerry Waddoups lived and taught.”
The Costley’s came to Preston 1983 after Wynn taught in the Ogden, Davis and Cache County school districts. The family settled in Mink Creek.
“When I came here we put down some roots and never found a reason to consider going anywhere else,” Wynn said, “We need to give everyone a big thank you. The community has been supportive. The school board has been very good to work with over the years.”
