After 50 years of service to the Williamson County Schools, Eugene Wade will retire from his role as Employee Relations and Recruitment Coordinator. “I have been highly favored by the Lord to have been able to work 48 years without missing a single day for personal illness,” said Wade. “I believe that I have impacted at least 7,500 students, teachers, administrators, potential employees and support staff over these 48 years of service.”
Wade began his career as a teacher with Natchez High School in 1964. Since then he has worked at Brentwood and Franklin High Schools and been in the Central Office of Williamson County schools since 1998. “We will probably never know how the extent of Eugene’s work has touched the lives of students and staff over the years,” said Superintendent Dr. Mike Looney.
A reception in his honor will be held on June 28th from 3-5 P.M. at the Carolyn Room of the Williamson County Schools Central Office. Jackie Baggett will succeed Wade. She has been working with him to provide a seamless transition.
