Yennie invited to interview for Wilson County position


BLOUNTVILLE — Sullivan County Director of Schools Jubal Yennie could receive a boost in base pay of about $33,000 per year.

However, that will only happen if he were offered and accepted the job to lead Wilson County schools in Middle Tennessee.

Yennie was hired in mid-2010 by the Sullivan County school board. Previously, he was assistant director in Williamson County.

Yennie is now among seven semifinalists for the Wilson County position. The seven are slated to appear for public interviews before the Wilson County school board Saturday.

Wilson County school board member Larry Tomlinson said that the last permanent director in Wilson County made about $165,000 plus benefits, including a vehicle provided by the system. He said that likely would be the salary neighborhood the new director might be paid.

On Oct. 7, 2013, the Sullivan County Board of Education increased Yennie's pay to almost $132,000 a year, plus benefits including a car allowance.

Before his most recent raise, Yennie's current annual pay was $129,654. He started out in 2010 making $120,000.
