Manchester has New Director of Schools

city schoolsAfter a long grueling process Manchester has a new director of schools. Earlier this week the Manchester Board of Education finalized a deal to make Lee Wilkerson the new director. The board had previously offered the job to Dr Don McPherson from Alabama, a contract that he later turned down for another job offer.
Wilkerson comes from the Murfreesboro City School system where he was principal at Cason Lane Academy. The contract that Wilkerson accepted is for three years at $110,000 per year.
Wilkerson is a 32-year veteran of public education with experience as a teacher, principal and human resources director during his career.
