Wilson County Schools is very pleased to announce that Dr. Monty Wilson is the new Human Resources Supervisor – Classified Personnel.
He transitioned to this role earlier this summer, and is excited about the new opportunities ahead in his new position.
“Everything has gone exceptionally well,” says Dr. Wilson. “I attribute the smooth transition to everyone in the Human Resources Department, as they are a great team who have been excellent to work with.”
Dr. Wilson comes to the WCS Human Resources Department after previously serving as the district’s Deputy Director of Academics. And while he has many years of experience in curriculum and instruction at either the state or district level, he also has valuable experience serving as a teacher and administrator. The move to WCS Human Resources is one that only increases his wide scope of knowledge in school district operations. It’s also something that he views as extremely important.
“At the end of the day one thing is constant, and that is our employees are the reason we are a successful school system. I believe it is important we keep our employees as a focus for our success moving forward, and I hope my past experiences will be a constant reminder to myself and others not to forget the value our employees bring to our district.”
The challenges of last school year also fueled his desire to apply for this particular leadership role.
“The pandemic was a reminder that you must have everyone working together in order to be successful. When this position came open I was excited at the possibility of working in a different department, a department that is extremely vital to the success of our school district.”
Director of Schools, Mr. Jeff Luttrell previously served as the HR Supervisor – Classified Personnel before transitioning into the director’s position this summer.
“Dr. Wilson brings an exceptional amount of knowledge to this position. He has a deep understanding of the landscape of our district and he’s very excited about this new role,” says Mr. Luttrell. “He’s such a valuable asset to our district, so to see him convert over to the Human Resources Department is something that I know he can contribute so much towards and provide an excellent service to many of our employees. I know first-hand what it involves. Dr. Wilson is a great fit for this position.”
Away from district work, Dr. Wilson enjoys spending time with his family and he also enjoys “new traditions” with them.
“The pandemic created new traditions in our house that we have kept, particularly family movie nights and family game nights. As a former English teacher, I always enjoy a good book and a good game of Scrabble, unless a good football game or Kansas City Royals baseball game is on television.”
