The mother of a student at Wilson ’s Mills Elementary School is accused of assaulting a school counselor following an incident on campus last month. Jennifer Everhart Wood, 36, of Whitley Drive , Smithfield is charged with assault on a school employee and disorderly conduct. Wilson ’s Mills Police Chief Steve Little said Wood’s child was sent to the counselor’s office following an incident in the classroom. Based on statements the child said, the counselor felt they need to talk with a parent, Chief Little said. When Mrs. Wood arrived, Chief Little said, she allegedly got into a verbal confrontation with the counselor and blocked the doorway so she couldn’t leave. When Officer Roy Aycock arrived, Chief Little said Wood was in a verbal confrontation with the principal.
