Gloria Hunt, who became an interim school board member in Catoosa County, District 1, this past summer, is now seeking a full term.
She replaced former school board member Billy Joe McDaniel who died recently after serving 38 years on the board.
Ms. Hunt has run a business and is a retired teacher from Battlefield Elementary.
She faces two challengers in the November General Election.
If elected, she will be the sole woman on the Catoosa County Board of Education.
