Williams hired as WHS counselor


WILMINGTON — Wilmington City Schools (WCS) employed several new staffers Wednesday, including a WHS alumnus as a high school guidance counselor.

Tyler Williams is returning to the area from out-of-state to be a counselor for Wilmington High School. WCS Superintendent Ron Sexton said “it is great to see alumni coming back” to the school district, now as educators.

Williams will join Kelli Sanders as a WHS counselor. Sexton said it is nice to have both genders represented as high school counselors “to deal with the different problems” that youths of high school age have.

Also hired at Wednesday’s special board of education meeting are Angela Nichole Killen for high school language arts, Elizabeth Steingass as fourth- and fifth-grade math teacher at East End, Holly Young as sixth-grade math teacher at the middle school, Zachary Black as high school social studies teacher, Ashley Davis as a math teacher at Holmes Elementary, Justin Evans as fourth- and fifth-grade social studies teacher at East End, and Erica Weihrauch as intervention specialist teacher at Denver Place Elementary.

The board accepted resignation requests from the following certified staff: Sheryl Robinson, Abigail Detcher, Jamie Roe, Kara Fawley, Laura Bowersox and Kristen Tobe.

Positions left to be filled in the district for the 2015-16 school year are high school physical education and Spanish teachers and an East End language arts educator.
