A long time Hardin County resident has been fired from the Jefferson County Public Schools system.
William Bennett was fired from Moore High School after security footage showed a physical altercation between Bennett and a student on August 23rd, 2021. While it appears the student initiated the fight, Bennett engaged in the fight by pulling the student’s hair.
Bennett was temporarily reassigned to non-instructional duties during the investigation, and was terminated in December.
Bennett previously served two terms as an Elizabethtown city councilman. He ran unsuccessfully in 2020.
