Smithfield man to lead students next fall
By RODNEY D. BOAM
Curtis Jenson, English Department chair at Logan High School, has accepted an offer to be the principal at Preston Junior High School.
Jenson is a Cache Valley native, who grew up on a farm Amalga. He graduated from Sky View and Utah State University. Besides teaching English at Logan High School, he also served as the professional development chair, technology committee chair and on a variety of other committees.
“Along with completing a Masters Degree in educational leadership from Western Governors University, I’ve spent most of the last two years working with Logan High’s administration, researching and implementing an intervention program at the high school to better serve our at-risk student population and offer more enrichment opportunities for mainstream students,” Jenson said.
He said he loves education and especially enjoys the lighter side of working in a school, where he can build on the contagious energy of students and faculty.
“Education is a serious thing, but I also believe it’s important to step back and enjoy the experience. It’s a rewarding profession, and I’m excited to take my next step as an educator in Preston,”
The assistant principal at Logan High School, Jill Lowe, said she was sorry to see him leave.
