Ben Prowell




My name is Ben Prowell and I am the superintendent at Wellman-Union.  I am very excited to begin my third year here at WU!  The 2020-2021 school year marks my 15th year in education. I grew up in Weatherford and graduated from Abilene Christian University in 2006.  From there, my wife and I moved to Lubbock and have been in the West Texas area ever since.

Prior to Wellman-Union, I was the principal at South Elementary in Levelland.  During my career, I have taught, coached, and served as an assistant principal.  My wife, Jarryn, and I have been married for 13 years.  She works as a speech pathologist for the Four County Coop.  We have three children: Emberly 10, Hudson 9, and Preston 7.  Outside of school, I enjoy playing golf, going to the lake, and and spending time with family.

I'm looking forward to this school year and excited to build on the success and traditions WU already has in place. Wellman-Union is a great school, with small class sizes, where teachers and coaches who truly care, and everybody knows your name!
