Wiederhold sworn in as newest WCS BOE member


WILMINGTON — Tim Wiederhold was recently sworn in as the newest Wilmington City Schools Board of Education member.

Wiederhold will be completing the unexpired term of Brian Shidaker and will serve through 2025. In March, Shidaker won the Republican primary in the race to become the new county prosecutor.

“Tim is a strong advocate for Wilmington City Schools, and the district is excited to have him join the board,” read a statement from WCS.

His wife, Elexis, is a preschool teacher at East End, and they have one son, Tate.

“The district was encouraged by the number of strong candidates who applied, showing a deep care for the schools and the children served. Tim will sit on the board for the next year and a half and will be officially up for election in November 2025,” the release states.

Wiederhold said, “Thank you to the current board members for choosing me and trusting that I will be able to make an impact in this position. Thank you to my parents (Jeff and Kim) for instilling in me a passion for education. Your dedication to the education system in your combined 60-plus years of service did not go unnoticed. I may not have finished my teaching license and got into the classroom like you, but I am doing everything I can to still impact our students in this community. Thank you to the community members who have encouraged me to do this and believe that I will represent our community well.”

“Finally, thank you to my wife, Elexis Wiederhold, for supporting my various involvement in our community and schools. I could not do this without your love and support,” he said.
