Local minister Glenn E. Hall is running for a seat on the Lauderdale County School Board because he wants to be active in the county's schools and he wants to help the community.
Hall will face incumbent school board president Robbie Hales, who represents District 2. Hales and Hall filed their candidate paperwork in the Lauderdale County Circuit Clerk's office on Friday before the 5 p.m. deadline.
Hales, who has served one term on the Lauderdale County School Board, declined to comment on her candidacy when contacted by phone on Friday.
Hall, who is pastor of Eighth Avenue Baptist Church and works as a customer service representative for Mississippi Power Co., lives in the Russell community. He is the father of three children, one of which is a junior at Northeast High School.
He said he will campaign for votes in the next couple of weeks by going door-to-door in his district.
District 1 school board member Barbara Jones also filed her qualifying paperwork in the circuit clerk's office Friday. She will be unopposed in the Nov. 2 election.
Jones said she is eager to continue serving on the school board. This will be her second, six-year term on the board.
Jones said she is proud of the progress Lauderdale County schools have made over the past six years.
Friday also was the deadline for county election commissioners to qualify for the November election. None of the election commissioners drew opposition this year.
Lauderdale County Election Commissioners are: Ann Watts, District 1, Republican; Ed Herman Walker, District 2, Democrat; Awana Daniels Simmons, District 3, Republican; Reuben R. Little, District 4, Independent; and Ann Hall, District 5, Republican.
