Board asks Jennings to look at termination policy

The Wilson Post

Wilson County Board of Education members asked County Attorney Mike Jennings at Monday nights regular meeting to review a policy that says the board and Director of Schools Mike Davis are not required to give teachers reasons for termination.

The board took the action at the request of District 8 Wilson County Commissioner Frank Bush. His request was made via a written statement read by his wife, Carol, to the board at Mondays meeting as Bush was unable to attend due to a scheduling conflict.

During the June 18 county commission meeting, Bush was critical of Davis and the board for not giving employees reasons why they were terminated. Bush said he had been approached by a handful of teachers and said none were given reasons for their termination.

Carol Bush, reading from her husbands statement, said the practice gives them great concern and likened the practice of putting do not rehire notes in some personnel files as being black-listed.

Red Cross issues emergency call for blood donors

The American Red Cross recently issued a national blood appeal, but the severe storms in the Midwest and mid-Atlantic areas may severely impact the ability to build the blood inventory back up to sufficient levels in many locations.

Power outages, fallen trees and other storm impacts mean that blood donors have been unable to get to blood donation centers and blood drives. Dozens of Red Cross blood drives have been cancelled, resulting in the shortfall of nearly 1,700 units of blood and platelets.

The Red Cross is calling on all eligible blood donors now more than ever to roll up a sleeve and give as soon as possible.All blood types are needed, but especially O positive, O negative, B negative and A negative in order to meet patient demand this summer.
