Bryan Traylor named new Franklin School Principal
Published on Monday, May 04, 2015

Superintendent Dr. Erin Prince is pleased to announce Bryan Traylor as the next Franklin principal to school staff and families today. Traylor is currently a principal in the district at Hoover Elementary and will start his new position on July 1, 2015. A selection committee composed of district staff and parent representatives interviewed Traylor last week and are excited to work with a veteran leader who understands the district, Franklin and has nearly 25 years of administration experience K-8.

Traylor started his career as a fourth and sixth grade teacher in Pendleton School District for 12 years before becoming principal of Heppner Elementary and Middle School in the Morrow County School District for two years. He then worked for the Milton-Freewater School District as a principal for 11 years at two elementary schools and a middle school. Traylor joined 509J in July 2004 as the principal at Mountain View Elementary and worked there for three years until moving to Hoover Elementary, where he’s worked for the last eight school years.  “Bryan comes to Franklin with a strong servant leadership model and will undoubtedly transition to his new position eager to listen and carry on the positive learning environment for students,” Prince said.

Superintendent Prince thanks the Franklin community for the feedback during the process and appreciates everyone welcoming Traylor to the Franklin family, where he will truly be a student-first leader.
