WILSON CO., Tenn. (WKRN) — Congratulations to Jeff Luttrell, who after 20 years with the Wilson County Schools district has been appointed the new director of schools.

News 2 spoke with Luttrell over the phone to talk about plans for the new role Monday.

“Due to my experience to being here in the district, I’m well aware of our talented teachers and administrators and our structures. We’ve had a lot of success and I just want to keep that moving forward,” said Luttrell.
