On September 7, 2017 BrianHornback.Com broke the news here about County Commissioner and then School employee Evelyn Gill being on leave during investigation. On November 2, 2017, BrianHornback.Com reported here that Gill opted to leave her employment at Knox County Schools rather than resume her employment at Fulton High School instead of returning to South Doyle Middle School.
On October 25, 2018 Knoxville News-Sentinel reported here that a lawsuit has been brought by the parents of a student that Gill was accused and investigated of abusing. The lawsuit is suing Gill, Knox County, the Knox County Board of Education, Schools Superintendent Bob Thomas and South-Doyle Middle School Principal Andrew Brown.
On Tuesday November 13, 2018 at 4:30 pm the Knox County Commission will meet to consider replacing resigned Pension Board Member John Schoonmaker. Sources have indicated that Gill may have interest in the appointment. With a pending suit that names Knox County, Knox County Board of Education, Knox County Schools Superintendent Bob Thomas and South-Doyle Middle School Principal Andrew Brown, I hope and believe they would not place Gill on the Pension Board. It would in my opinion not be a wise decision to place her on the Pension Board until the pending lawsuit is resolved and all the details have been revealed to the taxpayers of Knox County.
