Dear Mollison Community:

Greetings! My name is William Daniels, and the Local School Council selected me to be the new principal for Irvin C. Mollison Elementary School beginning July 1, 2021. It is truly an honor to be offered this role, and I am looking forward to my tenure here. 

Since my appointment, I have engaged in a series of informal conversations with various stakeholders. These interactions have only served to reaffirm everything I had previously heard about Mollison: this school community is committed to educating the whole child and ensuring that all scholars reach their maximum learning potential. With this in mind, I look forward to getting to know our scholars and learning more about the school and their needs. 

I hope that you reach out to me and introduce yourself in the coming weeks. Please contact me if you would like to meet and discuss your child, specific programs, or any Mollison-related concern. This collaboration will guide us as we work to support our scholar’s development on all levels.

As a servant leader, my fundamental goal is to make decisions that are in the best interest of our scholars. I passionately pursue this goal from the perspective that a  world-class education is a foundation for future accomplishments and civic contribution.  I am also driven by a desire to increase opportunities for students, support their individual needs, and see all of them grow beyond expectations.

Through the collaborative efforts of all school stakeholders, I am confident that your scholar will experience success. I look forward to the opportunity to serve the scholars, staff, and families of Mollison Elementary School. 


William D. Daniels, Ed.D.
