It took less than 40 minutes Saturday morning for the Wilson County Board of Education to unanimously vote to let former Director of Schools Dr. Tim Setterlund out of his contract.
Following this morning’s meeting of the Wilson County Board of Education, who unanimously voted to terminate the contract as Director of Schools Dr. Tim Setterlund, who had been on the job for only seven months, The Wilson Post attempted to contact all five of the board members to ask them the following question: “What take away lesson, if any, did you learn from the entire situation concerning Dr. Setterlund as you prepare to move forward in your search for a new director?”
Additionally, The Post talked to the chairs of the Wilson County Commission Budget and Education Committees for their reactions to today’s meeting, and with whose comments we begin our reporting of “In Their Own Words.”

The seven-month reign of Dr. Timothy Setterlund as Wilson County Schools director has ended.
The past nine days have been very trying for those in our school system, and we commend Dr. Setterlund for making the right decision.
