Two additional candidates, incumbent Kay Glenn and candidate Joey Bush, filed Tuesday morning for spots on the May 6 Yantis Independent School District trustees ballot.
Bush signed up Tuesday afternoon as a candidate for election for the two remaining years of the late Mike Kenney’s term on the school board. Bush is a firefighter and has lived in the district for five years.
Also seeking election to the two-year unexpired term on the school board are candidates April Johnson and Tyra Kenemore. Johnson, a stay-at-home mom, has lived in the district for 11 years. Kenemore, a deputy clerk at Hopkins County District Clerk’s office, has lived in the district for 36 years.
Incumbent Kay Glenn, who will complete her second term on the board in May, also filed candidacy Tuesday morning. She listed her occupation as a teacher and has been in the district for 24 years.
Challenging her for one of the two full-term seats on the school board are Shannon Hall, Mike Allen, Jennifer McKeever and Melissa Stephens. Hall is a homemaker and has lived in YISD for one year. Allen is retired and has lived in YISD 7 1/2 years. McKeever is a stay-at-home mom who has lived in the district for four years. Stephens owns Yantis Café and has lived in the district for 16 years, according to information provided by YISD Election Officer Kristi Beech.
As of Tuesday, incumbent Dwayne Attaway had not filed to seek reelection to the board. He will complete his fourth term on the board in May.
The two full-term seats are at-large, thus the two candidates receiving the most votes in the election will win the seats.
Candidate filing for all three seats will continue from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily through Friday, Feb. 17, in YISD Administration Building.
