Craig Utley

Principal, City View Elementary

This is my first year as principal and my tenth year in education. I was the assistant principal at the Junior/Senior High for two years. I taught for five years at the elementary campus and three years at the junior/senior high campus.

I am from Paradise, Texas where I attended K-12. I graduated from Midwestern State University with a bachelor's degree in Business Administration in 1993 and worked in business management for 15 years. I will graduated with my master's degree in Educational Leadership from Lamar University. I am currently working on my superintendent certification.

My wife, Meredith Utley, is the RtI Coordinator at the Junior/Senior High. She was the junior high special education teacher the previous four years. She received her master's in counseling from Angelo State University. My son, Nick, is 22 and graduating from Midwestern State University with a degree in Physics. Our daughter, Sailor, is 7 and a 2nd grader at City View Elementary. She is a member of the Wichita Elite Swim Team. When we are not at City View, we spend our time boating at Lake Texoma.

Go Mustangs!
