WHAT THE BOSS SAYS ABOUT HIM: “Mr. Wilson is a positive role model for all students at Bonham. He greets children and staff each morning with a welcoming smile. He is always willing to take on additional responsibilities and is flexible to work with students in any area needed. He voluntarily eats lunch with students and works often with our special needs students. He has taken on the role of Communication Director in which he facilitates our student lead announcement team and films our live announcements on Friday mornings. Many people do not realize all that Mr. Wilson does for Bonham because he humbly does not seek recognition. He is kind, hard-working and an asset to our campus. I am so thankful to have Mr. Wilson work at Bonham.” – Stevanie Jackson, Principal, Bonham Elementary School
