Wilson County Board of Education plans to announce a new director of schools during its regular meeting planned for Monday.

Board members plan to make their selection after presentations by the final two candidates Saturday. 

“Each candidate is going to make about an hour-long presentation [Saturday] about how they plan to bring the county to the top 5 percent in the state in five years and in 10 years to the top 5 percent in the nation,” said Board of Education Chair Don Weathers recently.

Saturday’s interviews are set to begin at 8 a.m. at the Central Office.

Clint Satterfield and Donna Wright will each be given the hour time frame to make their case as to how they would accomplish this feat, and the board will then deliberate as to the final choice.

Also on the agenda for Monday’s meeting, the board plans to recognize the student board members who served the 2013-14 school year as well as 2014 Teacher of the Year Joe Murphy.

There is a light agenda planned, with just six items up for discussion.

The board will discuss approval of changes to three board policies as well as approval of bids for processed food commodities and serving lines at Rutland Elementary School.

Wilson County Board of Education’s regular meeting will be held at 6 p.m. Monday at the Central Office, located at 351 Stumpy Lane in Lebanon
