Wilson County Schools Come Together in the Face of Tornado Devastation
By MTN reporter Kelly Fletcher 3/6/2020
Mount Juliet high school hosted a gathering Friday morning for West Wilson Middle and Stoner Creek Elementary faculty, students, and families following the devastation of Tuesday’s tornado.
The high school opened their doors to the two schools that took the most damage to offer them support and love in this difficult time.
The two schools sustained extreme damage during the storms earlier this week and, according to the Wilson County School board, the buildings will be closed for the remainder of the school year.
Several Wilson County schools were affected by the tornado on Super Tuesday and had to close this week in response to the destruction.
On Wednesday, the community came together in clean up efforts at the schools.
The board is tasked with relocating around 1,7000 displaced students moving forward. Wilson County Schools public information officer Bart Barker says plans are still being finalized but will be released in the coming days.
