The Wilson County Board of Education will meet Monday with a crowded agenda.

The board is scheduled to name a new director of schools following two rounds of extensive interviews. The board will announce its choice between the two finalists – Donna Wright and Timothy Setterlund – both of whom underwent extensive interviews in April.

The board is also expected to discuss whether to allow the Tennessee Board of Regents to establish a technology center at the old Lebanon High School. This idea was discussed at past board meetings with most of the board expressing support for the notion of vocational education at the site. The board also considered using the old school as a middle school but that idea was shelved after strong opposition from the public.

At the beginning of the meeting, the board will acknowledge Coca Cola Scholarship winners Victoria Webb of Lebanon High School, Cody Brandon of Mt. Juliet High School, Melanie Hall of Watertown High School and Jacob Myers of Wilson Central High School.

The board will also recognize the 2013 Teacher of the Year candidates.

There are eight people on the agenda to address the board on various issues.

The board meets at at 6 p.m. at the Central Office at 351 Stumpy Lane in Lebanon. The board will meet for a work session Thursday at 5 p.m.
