Mickey Hall, deputy director of Wilson County schools, spoke recently to Wilson One members during the group’s February meeting.
Hall spoke on various issues from finances to the day-to-day operations of the school system.
“We are fortunate in Wilson County to have great schools and some of the best teachers in the state,” said Wilson One president Linda Armistead. “Wilson County is also anticipating even greater growth in school population in the near future.”
Hall also talked to the group about how decisions are made when closing schools for inclement weather. There are many factors to consider when making that decision, he said.
A question-and-answer session followed as the Wilson One group enjoyed learning even more about local schools and the responsibility that rest on the shoulders of the Wilson County Board of Education, directors and administrators.
“So much goes into running a school system like Wilson County,” Armistead said. “It makes us proud of our students, teachers and administration and all who make our county great.”
