Wilson County School’s Stan Moss has found his way back to the Principal’s office. 

Moss had been a principal in the Wilson County school system for 15 years, but has spent the past year and a half as the Attendance Coordinator for the school system at the Central Office. When Lori Hassell resigned from the position in December, Director of Schools Dr. Tim Setterlund asked Moss to step back into the principal’s role for the remainder of the year. A replacement was hoped to be found around Spring Break. 

“He’s doing a great job,” said Director of Schools Dr. Tim Setterlund

Moss said he settled into the position quickly thanks to the great staff and teachers in place at Elzie Patton, particularly that of Assistant Principal Wilma Hawkins. 

“I’ve been having a good time,” said Moss. 

Moss said he immediately met with the PTO, board members, and faculty to lay out the plan for the rest of the year. He said everyone was very receptive and very excited about the direction Elzie Patton would be heading the rest of the year. 

“I’ve been told by plenty of parents that the transition has been smooth,” said Moss. 

Moss said that everything is going as normal right now. The 5th graders are preparing for their writing test in February, and the other grades are going about their daily lessons, and will take the TCAPs in May. 

Moss said that all the people at Elzie Patton have just joined all the great people he has worked with over the years. 

“They’ve just accepted me, and made the job easy,” said Moss. “I see it as a bunch more people added to my family.”
