Seven people applied for the vacancy on the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Board of Education created when Michelle Brownstein resigned last month.
Here's the whole list:
- Allen Buansi, a research consultant with Democracy North Carolina
- Ashton Powell, a teacher at the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics
- Erika Lipkin, a self-employed CPA
- Hector Rosario, also a teacher at Science and Math and a doctoral student
- Joal Hall Broun, director of the Lobbying Compliance Division in the Secretary of State's Office, a 2015 candidate for the board and a former member of the Carrboro Board of Aldermen
- Mary Ann Wolf, director of digital learning programs at the Friday Institute for Educational Innovation at N.C. State University
- Theresa Watson, a 2015 candidate for the board and a 2014 candidate for the Carrboro Board of Aldermen
The complete application packets are available online, and the board will interview the candidates during a meeting on Thursday. I'll be there live tweeting the meeting, so be sure tune into our Twitter account that evening.
I'll also post a Storify of the all my tweets as a comment to this post Friday morning.
