Hurricane Dorian Heroes

We are SO GRATEFUL to Wilson County Emergency Management, law enforcement, firefighters, paramedics, city and county crews, NCDOT, the Red Cross, our WCS Maintenance Department, news outlets and countless others who serve us selflessly during emergencies and inclement weather! Shout Out! to Superintendent Dr. Mills who always errs on the side of caution and seeks advisement from weather experts to keep us safe during inclement weather. He is responsible for the safety and the education of more than 11,000 students and 2,000 staff members - so he does not take the decision to close schools lightly.
