Proven success and ability have propelled two veteran educators to the top of their professions as newly named administrators in the Wilson County school system.
Wilson County Schools spokesperson Jennifer Johnson announced promotions to principal for both Jason Dunn and Kayla Price.
Dunn is already known at Carroll-Oakland Elementary School. For the past three years he's served at this school as assistant principal and athletic director. He'll start the 2017-2018 school year as the new principal.
According to Johnson, prior to his stint as assistant principal at Carroll-Oakland, Dunn worked as a teacher at MAP (Modified Academic Program).
"At MAP he was often praised for going above and beyond for students who are most 'at risk' of failure," said Johnson.
She noted as assistant principal at Carroll-Oakland, "Dunn demonstrated his strong work ethic among peers and parents alike."
With 16 years under her belt in the Wilson County school system, Price, who lives in Wilson County, worked as an elementary teacher for a decade. She was assistant principal at Watertown Middle School for three years and now will take the helm as principal, said Johnson.
"Price has made a name for herself because of her willingness to tackle some of the district's tougher projects," said Johnson.
