Salyersville Grade School’s Site-based Decision Making Council earlier this week tapped Magoffin County educator Willie Cole as its newest principal. The selection of Cole became official Tuesday afternoon when Magoffin schools superintendent Joe Hunley signed off on the hiring.
Cole has served the past few years as a computer/language arts specialist teacher at Herald Whitaker Middle School and Magoffin County High School. He was employed as a classroom teacher at HWMS at the time of the hiring. Cole also serves as head football coach for Herald Whitaker.
