Wilson County Schools has announced that Director of Schools Dr. Donna Wright has been named as “Superintendent of the Year” for 2019 by the Mid-Cumberland Region of the Tennessee Organization of School Superintendents.
The Mid-Cumberland Region represents 16 school districts including Clarksville-Montgomery County, Cheatham County, Dickson County, Franklin Special School District, Houston County, Humphreys County, Lebanon Special School District, Metro-Nashville Public Schools, Murfreesboro City Schools, Rutherford County, Robertson County, Sumner County, Stewart County, the Tennessee School for the Blind, Williamson County, and Wilson Co.
Dickson County Director of Schools Danny Weeks says the group selected Wright because of her strong leadership of their organization over the past year.
