New DoS receives pay bump

The Wilson Post
Wilson County Board of Education approved a three-year contract for Dr. Timothy Setterlund, who will replace exiting Director of Schools Mike Davis, effective July 1, this past Thursday.

Setterlund, who currently serves as the Assistant Superintendent of Memphis City/Shelby County School, will receive a salary of $165,000 for the job, which Board Chairman Don Weathers said is more than Davis was paid.

Although he did not mention the exact dollar amount that Davis earned annually, Weathers admitted that he was probably underpaid for how much growth we have had in the last few years. Weathers compared Setterlunds $165,000 salary to counties such as Sumner and Williamson.
