The Wilson County Board of Education will interview two remaining candidates for the director of schools post.

It is a choice between the two top candidates who emerged from last Saturday's interviews of four potential directors. Donna Wright, currently assistant superintendent of Williamson County schools and a former assistant superintendent for Knox County schools, and Timothy Setterlund, currently chief transition officer as Memphis City schools merge with Shelby County schools, will vie for the top post.

Board Chairman Don Weathers said the final interviews will be conducted in two parts.

"First, the candidates will have private, one-on-one sessions with each board member for about 15 minutes," he said. "Then we will have 30-45-minute public interview with each beginning at 10:30 a.m."

He said board members will have time to consider their choice.

"We will announce at the May 6 board meeting who the next director of schools will be," Weathers said. "That will give us a few days to think about it."

He said the choice is not an easy one since both finalists are highly qualified.

"Both are very good, and that's a good thing for us," he said.

The public interviews will take place at the Central Office at 351 Stumpy Lane in Lebanon.
