LEBANON, Tenn. (WTVF) — Leaders in Wilson County have come up with an idea to show teachers how much they're appreciated.

They’re offering “We Love Our Wilson County Teachers” signs for $10 in hopes community members will purchase them and place them in their yards. The $10 covers the cost of printing the signs.

From all the stress the pandemic caused plus damage to Wilson County schools from the 2020 tornadoes, the past few years have been complicated for teachers. So, in partnership with the Chambers of Commerce in Wilson County and "Everyone's Wilson," city leaders decided to offer the signs as a show of support as teachers prepare to head back into classrooms.

"This is the result of a lot of people coming together as we kick off the new school year. We want every teacher in Wilson County from public, private, and Lebanon Special School District to know how much we care,” Mt. Juliet Chamber of Commerce President Mark Hinesley said.

To get a sign, stop by a Chamber of Commerce office in Lebanon, Mt. Juliet, or Watertown.

Students in Wilson County head back to school on August 1.
