Tom Wilson, newly appointed SWSD No. 2 Board of Trustees member

Wilson, recently retired, spent 40 years working for SWSD No. 2. Having worked in many capacities, he feels like he has something to contribute to the Board.

“I felt like the Board could use a perspective from someone who has worked in the classroom and also for the administration,” said Wilson. “I think my skill set can compliment the board and the district.”

Wilson has served as a teacher, dean of students, activities director, and district athletic and activities director. He enjoyed them all equally.

“When I took a welding job for my last five years, I was reminded why I got into the business in the first place — to really serve the kids,” said Wilson. “I’ve enjoyed everything I have done.”

Wilson looks forward to serving in collaboration with the board to serve the community.

“I think our board, our administration, our teachers, and our kids are doing an amazing job. People complain about the youth of today, but we have amazing kids,” Wilson said.

In his spare time, Wilson loves to enjoy Wyoming, whether it’s by fishing, hiking or camping. He also loves to spend time with his wife, kids, and grandkids. Wilson is proud of his grandkids, who seem to be following in his footsteps. All together, they are involved in collegiate, high school, and elementary school athletics.

Wilson is looking forward to getting started in his new capacity, and has already been out to some of the schools in the area.

“It’s nice to see the things that are going on right now,” said Wilson.
