Wilford M. McKendrick (1908-1910)

Wilford M. McKendrick was originally from Tooele and graduated from Brigham Young Academy in Provo. He taught math at Brigham Young Academy and then at Weber Academy. He became principal following the tenure of his dear friend David O. McKay.

“During (McKendrick’s) year of service, the institution’s name was changed to Weber Academy due to the fact that the Weber Stake of the LDS Church was split into three stakes.” (John Sillito, Weber State College … A Centennial History, “Weber’s Principals and Presidents,” 1988)
