MJHS near capacity after
first year in new building
On the first day of school this week, enrollment at Mt. Juliet High School was nearly 1,900 students.
Officials won’t know the “hard numbers” until the end of this week, but maximum core capacity is 2,200.
And that’s not even considered the main challenge for this school year. See story on Page 3.

For one Mt. Juliet
woman, winning a Fulbright
scholarship was just the
beginning of an adventure
which continues August 10
when she, her husband, and
her 80 year-old father leave
for Uganda to live for nearly
a year.
Ruby Dunlap and her
husband Bob have lived in
Mt. Juliet for 23 years. She is
an associate professor in the
Gordon E. Inman College of
Health Science and Nursing
at Belmont University,
where she has been for 13
years. She was awarded the
Fulbright Scholar grant to
lecture at Uganda Christian
University in Uganda, Africa,
during the 2009 – 2010
academic year. She will be
one of approximately 1,100
US faculty and professionals
who will travel abroad
through the Fulbright US
Scholar Program.
For Dunlap, the
scholarship and trip were
“serendipitous.”
“All this happened in
a perfect window of time,”
Dunlap said. “I knew it was
this year or never.”
Dunlap said she
was “ready for a Sabbatical”
from Belmont, which was
one of the motivations for
applying for the Fulbright
scholarship. The Fulbright
Program, America’s
flagship international
educational exchange
program, is sponsored by
the US Department of State,
Bureau of Educational and
Cultural Affairs. Since its
establishment in 1946,
the Fulbright Program has
provided approximately
294,000 people – 108,160
Americans who have studied,
taught or researched abroad
and 178,340 students,
scholars and teachers from
other countries who have
engaged in similar activities
in the United States – with the
opportunity to observe each
others’ political, economic,
educational and cultural
institutions, to exchange
ideas and to embark on
joint ventures of importance
to the general welfare of the
world’s inhabitants. The
Program operates in over
155 countries worldwide.
Dunlap said she
chose the Uganda Christian
University, an Anglican
school, because “it’s like
Belmont” in its student
population, it is faith-based,
has a nursing program and
“they teach in English.”
“Uganda is very
stable politically,” she said,
adding that she has spent
time in neighboring Kenya,
Tanzania, and Somalia.
Dunlap, as a
matter of fact, was raised
in Somalia by her father,
Carl Wesselhoeft, who was
a missionary there, and
the proximity of Somalia to
Uganda also played a part in

schools officially started
back on Monday, and rapid
growth in the western section
of the county is already
causing some growing pains
– with Mt. Juliet High, after
just the first day of school,
already nearing capacity in
its second year in
the new school.
W i l s o n
County Director
of Schools Mike
Davis said Monday
evening that most of
the county’s student
growth is in Mt.
Juliet, specifically
Rutland Elementary
and MJHS. He
said that while the
“hard numbers” of
enrollment won’t be
available until the
end of this week,
early numbers for
MJHS are nearly
1,900 students in
a high school with
a core capacity of
2,200. He added
that there are
already around 10
“floating teachers,”
which are teachers
with no assigned
classroom who
move from room to room per
period to teach.
“And therein lies the
problem – they have to find
classrooms that are empty,”
Davis remarked late Monday
afternoon. “They may have to
go from one end of one wing
to the end of another one to
find an available classroom.
It creates issues.”
Davis said he’d
spoken with MJHS Principal
Mel Brown, who he said is
making the situation “as
palpable as possible.” Davis
said he visited several Mt.
Juliet schools on Monday,
including West Elementary,
which is up 30 students
over last year, and Mt. Juliet
Middle School.
Davis said that
MJMS, which is now located
in the old MJHS located on
N. Mt. Juliet Road and is
utilizing that school’s annex
building for classes, was on
Monday already out of chairs
and desks and topping 1,400
students enrolled.
“Mt. Juliet is
definitely seeing the majority
of growth in the county,”
he said. “We’re already
probably going to need
another teacher at Elzie
Patton (Elementary).”
Elzie Patton was
established in 2008 in order
to alleviate growing student
enrollment in Mt. Juliet’s
other elementary schools.
He added that West Wilson
Middle School in Mt. Juliet
had 969 students enrolled
just as of Monday, which is
“up quite a bit,” around 100
students, from last year.
Davis noted that
apartments located in
Providence began leasing
this week, “so there will
probably be even more
students” trickling into
the system in the coming
weeks.
“The economy may
have slowed but student
(enrollment) growth
continues,” Davis said,
estimating another 1,000
students crowding
into schools in
the coming years.
“Five years from
now something
significant will
have to happen in
the west end of the
county.”
Davis noted
that Lebanon High
School, which has
had its share of
reported problems
recently, is up
some 80 students
compared to last
year, topping out
at over 1,600
students. He said
that while Lebanon
is in need of a new
high school he
does not “see a
whole lot of impact
of that on the west
end.”
“If we can get
a new high school
there of the appropriate size
we should be able to take
care of their needs for the
next 10 years or so,” the
director said. “The issue
now is getting the wheel tax
passed to pay for it.”
For now, though,
Davis said MJHS “will have
floating teachers for now”
and may have to look to
expanding the school in the
future. He said he wished
MJHS had “one more floor”
to accommodate a 10-year
growth as well.

her decision.
“You can’t get in or
out of Somalia right now, for
political reasons,” Dunlap
said softly, touching the
small pink country on a
map with one fingertip. “But
I still know people there, and
I’d visit if I could.”
Dunlap’s husband,
Bob, will accompany her. A
builder, Bob will help with
a building project, possibly
in Iganga, with US Aid to
build a farmer’s market,
restaurant and bakery. She
said they, and her father,
will live in campus housing
in Mukono, where the
university is located.
Dunlap said her
husband would have to
commute to wherever he
chooses to work, and that
she’s “been told that Uganda
driving is a free-for-all.”
“Basically the fastest
and strongest gets the
right of way,” she smiled
and shrugged. “I’ve asked
people who have done it
before and all had three
suggestions: hire a driver,
rent a car, or buy something
inexpensive.”
Dunlap said the
Fulbright scholarship pays
for travel expenses for
herself, her husband and
her father, they will have an
expense account, Fulbright
will pay her a salary, and
Belmont is giving her the
entire year for Sabbatical.
Dunlap and her
family are currently
getting their inoculations,
including shots to prevent
polio, meningitis, typhoid,
Hepatitis A and yellow fever.
The family will also have
to take malaria pills and
sleep under mosquito nets.
She added that Uganda is
“ravaged” by HIV, and this
will be her first time working
in a hospital where the
majority of the patients are
HIV positive.
Dunlap will be
teaching a lead course to
masters students, nursing
courses, and some health
assessment classes as
well as participating in a
research project on adapting
international standards of
nursing care in “austere
conditions.”
“Which we’ll all
be facing pretty soon, I
imagine,” she remarked.
The Dunlaps have
one child, Amy Dunlap
Sutton, who attended Mt.
Juliet Christian Academy
until her senior year of
high school, when she
transferred to and graduated
from Wilson Central High
School. Amy is finishing her
doctorate in occupational
therapy at Belmont and is
slated to graduate May 14,
2010, which is why, Dunlap
said, the family is returning
in May of next year. Amy
and her husband Chris,
who will also graduate next
year in clinical psychology
from Trevecca Nazarene
University, are house sitting
for the Dunlaps during their
absence and “take care of
the cats.”
“As soon as we get
back we’ll rent a truck and
have them out of there,”
Dunlap laughed, “and taking
them wherever they go next.
Always the adventure.”
Dunlap has had
years of training to ready
her for her own adventure
in Uganda, she said: she is a
community health nurse and
has worked with refugees
for 13 years, including home
visits with refugee families
in Nashville. These families
are from places such as
Somalia, Sudan, and the
Democratic Republic of the
Congo in Africa.
“The work has kept
me connected to the world of
international work,” Dunlap
said. “Now I get to see it
again, first hand.”

Knoxville mayor and
Tennessee gubernatorial
candidate Bill Haslam
visited Mt. Juliet Tuesday
to tour the area, noting
that meeting with economic
leaders and developers in
each region of the state
will help build individual
strategies for recruiting
business, improving school
systems and enriching
quality of life.
Haslam and his
daughter Leigh met with Mt.
Juliet/West Wilson Chamber
of Commerce CEO/President
Mark Hinesley and sat down
with The Chronicle for an
interview Tuesday morning
before embarking on a day
tour of the area.
Haslam has been
mayor of Knoxville since
2003, re-elected in 2007
with 87 percent of the vote,
and considers himself a
“life-long conservative.” He
announced his candidacy
for Tennessee governor in
January, 2009.
H a s l a m
acknowledged that the next
Tennessee governor faces
three main challenges:
health care and TennCare
reform, a strapped budget,
and reform of the K-12
educational system in a
struggling economy.
“TennCare is
about 25 percent of the
state’s budget, and prior
to (Gov. Phil) Bredesen’s
administration it was in the
low 30 percents,” Haslam
said. “Of course it depends
on what happens with health
care on the national level,
but if (representatives in
Washington) D.C. pass the
current attempt at national
health care reform the state
will see a $700 million to
$1 billion a year cost. And
that’s on top of the $1.25
billion shortfall at the close
of last year’s budget.”
Haslam said state
lawmakers “fixed” that
shortfall by dipping into
state savings and from the
Federal stimulus package,
but neither solution will
be available to the next
governor.
As far as TennCare
reform, Haslam said
Bredesen “saw it was eating
up the budget” but was
unable to make “major
structural changes” because
of court lawsuits involving
who TennCare could
service.
“He tried to reform
but he just wound up cutting
the roles,” Haslam said. “He
made very limited changes
to TennCare.”
Haslam added that
whomever is elected as the
next governor will “have to
be very diligent in watching
fraud and abuse” in the
TennCare system.
Tennessee’s budget,
Haslam said, “is impacting
everything,” including the
K-12 educational system.
“Of the 50 states,
we are 42nd in education
attainment. We will have to
have some real educational
reform.”
One difference in
education the Knoxville
mayor and father of three
said is “ready to change” is
TCAP testing in Tennessee.
He said that when No
Child Left Behind was
mandated each state began
to determine the level of
proficiency, or “score card,”
of its students. Last year in
Tennessee some 80 percent
of students tested proficient
or better at grade level.
Next year Tennessee
will adopt the national
standards, and Haslam said
that number of 80 percent of
students testing proficient
or better will likely drop
to 25 percent due to the
Tennessee Diploma Project
and additional requirements
for incoming high school
freshmen.
“I think this is
going to be a wake-up call
throughout the state. It’s
going to be hard and bad
news for parents, but I think
we can use that to drive
real reform in education,”
Haslam said. “This is a once
in a lifetime opportunity to
look at education differently.
It will have everyone in
the state’s attention about
the state of education in
Tennessee.”
Part of his plan
for education reform is
“developing better strategies
for teachers.”
“A good teacher
makes all the difference in
the world,” he said.
Another component
is a “pipeline for
developing principals and
superintendents” across the
state. He said elementary,
middle, and high school
principals need better

“We need to give
principals the data needed to
effectively run their school.
They have it now, but we’re
not giving them the training

Haslam added that
next year in Knox County
educators will implement a

about students to track
progress and problems on
a more individual level and
“filter in a different way.”
As far as who, if
elected, he would appoint
as education commissioner,
Haslam said he doesn’t
really know right now – “the
election is more than a
year away” – but said that
leadership on a state level is
relative to the quality of the
support team.
Haslam said that
a third challenge of K-12
education reform is job
attraction – recruiting more
businesses to the area to
improve tax income and
supply the school system.
He added that his public
experience in economic
recruiting in Knoxville has
led to that city being named
one of the top 10 cities in the
country to live for the last
three years. Privately, he
was president of a business
that started in Tennessee
and now has some 14,000
employees across the
country. He said he knows
how to convince corporation
and business owners “here’s
why Tennessee is a great
place to be.”
R e l o c a t i o n
of business and job
development is crucial to not
only Mt. Juliet and Wilson
County, he said, but the
state in order to boost the
economy, sustain quality of
life, and thrive as a knitted
community.
Before heading
to lunch at Baker’s Café,
Haslam said that Mt. Juliet
is “seeing great growth
because of the quality of
life, it’s a great place to do
business, and the quality of
its education.”
“But even here, you
still feel the pressure for
more jobs, more education,”
he mused. “You have a
lot of advantages here,
and part of what I want to
do is work with regional
economic development
leaders to develop a strategy
for business and quality of
life.”

school seniors $1,000 scholarships, including Spencer Neville and Kelton Stewart of Wilson Central
High School and Laura Long and Taylor Haydel of Mt. Juliet High School. The tournament raised a
total of $3,500 to benefit the families of Karli Costley, Savannah Swandal, and Makenzie Matthews, local

the students and families
of Mt. Juliet Montessori
Academy (MJM) and
extend the opportunity to
the greater community by
offering the events at the Mt.
Juliet Library,” says Lenny
Franklin, a parent Volunteer
whose children attend Mt
Juliet Montessori Academy.
“Part of the mission of our
school is community service
and education, and this
complimentary series of kids’
events and parent education
topics dovetails beautifully
with those goals. We are all
very excited about this!”
The first of the
series is a presentation and
demonstration of Native
American culture which
will be designed with the
guidance of a local expert
on Tennessee’s Native
Americans. Clothing, tools
and traditions will be shown
and discussed, and books
on the subjected that are
available at the Library
will be recommended. The
Native American culture
exhibit is scheduled for
August 27th at 6:30pm and

From staff reports

There may yet be
another candidate to toss
his hat in the ring for Wilson
County mayor.
Former Wilson
County Emergency
Management Agency
Director Jerry McFarland
and now a member of the
Wilson County Commission
has indicated that he is
quietly exploring a candidacy
for the post which is to be on
the ballot next year.
Joining McFarland
with an interest in the office
are announced candidates
State Sen. Mae Beavers
and former Lebanon Mayor
Don Fox, and one other
who says at this time he is
only considering entering
the race, Lebanon Special
School District Assistant
Director Randall Hutto.
McFarland, who
was selected by the County
Commission some two
months ago to replace the
late Carolyn Thompson in
District 5, said he has been
asked by several to consider
running for the county
mayor job.
A retired colonel from
the Tennessee Army National
Guard and the former state
director of the Tennessee
Emergency Management
Agency, McFarland is a
native of Wilson County
and currently resides on his
family’s farm on Coles Ferry
Pike.
Among the interests
he cited in considering his
candidacy, he said he believed
Wilson County should direct
more attention toward
finding job opportunities for
the immediate future.

“That would have
been a good plan,” Davis
said, “to have a fourth,
unfinished floor to work with
in years to come. It’s obvious
they built it too small.”
When asked why
MJHS wasn’t planned
and built larger from the
beginning Davis said he
had “no idea. I wasn’t here
during that process.”
Davis said MJHS
“had a really smooth
opening” on Monday,
considering the congested
traffic in the morning and a
full parking lot.
But Davis said he
doesn’t consider the explosive
growth and crowded halls of
west Wilson County schools
the main challenge – it’s the
State standards of education
that pose problems this
year.
“It’s what we’re
teaching, the pacing guides,
the benchmarking of what
is being taught against the
benchmarks set by the State,
the mastering of what’s being
taught and then re-teaching
what’s not being mastered
by the students who aren’t
mastering it,” Davis said.
“We’ve added more to the
plate without adding to the
size of the plate, you could
say. There are many more
requirements this year,
and those requirements are
difficult.”
The second challenge
in Davis’s opinion is the
fact that county schools
have changed their testing
company from McGraw-Hill
to Pearson, and educators
“don’t know about those
tests.”
“We’re not familiar
with Pearson’s testing
system and unsure how that
will play out.”
The third main
challenge, he said, is the
inevitable downfall of a
student with the H1N1 flu.
He said he hopes parents
and educators “don’t panic”
when that happens.
“It’s not if but when
a student will contract
it,” Davis said. “We’ll deal
with it appropriately, but I
just hope everyone doesn’t
panic.”
Davis added that,
as of the first day of school,
there are 252 more students
on the books than the first
day of school last year,
and “the hill is going to be
higher.”
“We’ll come up with
a plan to deal with the
challenges,” Davis mused.
“I just hope the county
commission doesn’t take
any money away from us
because we’re going to need
every penny to deal with the
growth.”

Reflections
from an
Old Friend
School Zone and Bus Stop Safety
With school now back in session, I wanted to remind all motorists of the importance
of obeying all rules of the road in school zones and residential areas. As we all know,
student and pedestrian safety in school zones is a paramount concern. We must strive
daily to assure that our students arrive for school and exit school safety. In order to
accomplish this paramount mission, we must obey all rules of the road at all times.
Common violations in schools zones and residential areas are speeding,
tailgating, stop sign violations, not paying attention and impatience. Most drivers and
motorists aren’t aware that speeding even one mile per hour over the posted speed limit
in a school zone when school zone flashing lights are activated is prima facie reckless
driving. Any speeding violation, no matter the amount of speed over the posted limit is
reckless driving when in a school zone. In other words, the utmost care must be used
when in a school zone.
Human life is our most precious asset and we must do all we can to protect it.
Speeding is bad enough in rural areas, but even worse in heavily populated areas like
schools zones and residential areas. Making up a second here or a minute there just isn’t
worth the price of a citation or possibly injuring or killing yourself or someone else.
I would also like to ask that all motorists support our officers and crossing guards
working in school zones and assisting with traffic. They have very difficult and dangerous
jobs. They are there to assist moms and dads in getting their children to and from
school safely. I would also ask that we respect construction workers working in road
construction areas. Let’s do what we can to make our roads safer. The roads are ours
and must be shared safely.
In closing, we only want you to be safe, happy and healthy, for you are our most
precious cargo and assets.

able to work. This benefit will help to support the family with their monthly needs, including rent,
utilities, groceries, and more. Dinner will be served 6 – 7 p.m. furnished by Whitt’s Barbeque,
and music and dancing will be from 7 – 9 p.m. provided by the Caleb Allstar band. Tickets
are $10 for adults and $5 for children under 12. All proceeds go to Caleb’s family. For more

The 1st Annual Keep Our Heroes Safe BBQ and Chili Cookoff will be held at the Tennessee State
Fairgrounds August 21, 22, and 23, with live entertainment Saturday, 12:30 p.m. until 11 p.m.
This free, family-friendly event will include police and fire departments and emergency medical
service representatives from across the state in an effort to raise money to help our Everyday
Heroes – especially at a time when budget shortfalls are an issue – police departments need
bullet-proof vests and fire/EMS departments need equipment, but often there is little to no
funding for it. The public is invited to this free event to show support for the state’s police, fire
and emergency personnel, and sponsors are currently needed in the community. For more
information contact Shenia Moyer at smoyer@aasouth.com or call her at 615-440-7234.

match beginning at 10:30 a.m. and will be made up of over 30 local residents. The tournament
has two major sponsors, Subway of Mt. Juliet and Two Rivers Ford, and including sponsorships
and entry fees the City hopes to donate $500.00 to Athletes for a Cure, which is part of the
Prostrate Cancer Foundation. “The tournament will be the first of many wellness and sporting
events that will be taking place in the city over the next year,” said Ryan Armstrong, with the Mt.
Juliet Parks and Recreation Department. “We would really like to start our wellness events off
with a lot of support and spread the word to get more people involved.”For more information on
the volleyball tournament or how to get involved call Ryan Armstrong at 615-289-9181 or email

WEEKLY BIBLE VERSE:
For he who would love life,
and see good days, let him
refrain his tongue from evil.
And his lips from speaking
deceit. Let him turn away
from evil and do good. Let
him seek peace and pursue
it. For the eyes of the Lord
are on the righteous. And
his ears are open to their
prayers. But the face of the
Lord is against those who do
evil. 1 Peter 3:10-12
