School district news

By Margaret Koenig

While only a few races were contested in the Tuesday elections for seven of the largest Arkansas school districts, those races did not end well for most incumbents. In the five contested races, only two incumbents were able to retain their seats.

Incumbent Willie Cowgur defeated Kirsten Johnston in the race for Zone 4 of Bentonville School District's Board of Education. Zone 5 incumbent Lisa Clark, however, was unseated by former board member Travis Riggs. Neither of the Little Rock School District Board of Education incumbents retained their seats. Joy C. Springer unseated first-term Zone 1 incumbent Norma Jean Johnson, while Zone 5 incumbent Jody Carreiro lost to Jim Ross. Springdale Public Schools Zone 3 incumbent Kathy McFetridge easily defeated her challenger Henry Pudder Hudson, and the district's millage rate continuation question was approved by a large margin.[1]

The remaining majority of candidates were elected without opposition with three incumbents and three newcomers in uncontested races. Rogers School District held an uncontentious election. Amy Horn was elected without opposition to the Zone 4 seat on the board, and a millage question to continue the district's current millage rate was approved.[2] Similarly in Conway Public Schools, Wesley "Trip" Leach and Scott Champlin won their first terms on the board without opposition to the Zone 4 and 5 seats, respectively.

Cabot Public School District Board of Education Position 1 incumbent Corey Williams retained his seat for a second consecutive term without opposition. Jeannie Cole and Deanie Mehl were both re-elected to the Fort Smith Public Schools Board of Education. Cole retained the Zone 3 seat, and Mehl retained her at-large seat.
