Mr. Waylon Priester
I am originally from Brunson, SC, a rural farming community in the beautiful lowcounty of our State. I was actively involved in my High School's FFA program where I served as Vice President and took advantage of every opportunity that the FFA had to offer. After high school, I went to Horry Georgetown Technical College to pursue an A.S. in Forestry. Upon completion of that degree, I transferred to Clemson University. While at Clemson, I obtained my B.S. in Forest Resource Management and M.S. in Agricultural Education. The FFA has always been a key part of my life. I often credit the FFA for getting me to where I am today, actually, many of my past teachers, advisors, friends, and even my wife were all because we met through the FFA.
While at Clemson I met my beautiful wife, Ashley, and we married in April of 2014. The Lord has blessed us with two beautiful daughters, Baylor Kate (5) and Mattie Griffyn (4). Aside from teaching, my wife and I own 5 broiler houses and own Sweet P General, a small home decor store and greenhouse in Townville, SC, where we live.
Most of our days are filled with hard work at school, the store, or the farm but we do enjoy getting out and traveling as often as possible. We enjoy the beach, pool time, the mountains and shopping.
