Dr. Mills and his family are happy to be back in Wilson, where his children were born, and where they have deep roots. He is excited about working with students and staff to continue the great work being done here.

“I am committed to engaging students, staff and community members to create a relentless focus on success,” Dr. Mills said. “I will remain approachable and available to the community and schools in every possible way. This is not a job for me, but a calling.”

After graduating from Union County Public Schools, Dr. Mills attended East Carolina University and earned a bachelor’s in psychology. He earned his master’s and doctorate degrees in school psychology from the University of South Carolina. Dr. Mills began his career in education as a school psychologist for Edgecombe County Schools.
