Teacher union director, two MSCS incumbents ahead

Two of three Memphis-Shelby County Schools board incumbents are ahead in their school board races, unofficial and incomplete election results show.

Longtime executive director of the Memphis-Shelby County Education Association, Keith Williams, is ahead of incumbent Charles Everett, a recent appointee to the board.

Totals reflect unofficial early voting results and Election Day results cast for 40% of all county precincts.

Michelle McKissack, board chair, remains in the lead for District 1 and Joyce Dorse-Coleman in the lead for District 9.

See unofficial and incomplete totals below.

Two of the seats on the nine-member board will turn over this fall. Longtime board member Billy Orgel did not run for re-election, paving the way for Amber Huett-Garcia to secure the District 8 East Memphis seat in an uncontested election.

Miska Clay Bibbs, another longtime school board member, secured her seat on the Shelby County Commission in May when she won the Democratic nomination in the unchallenged race. The commission will be tasked with appointing a successor to her District 7 seat, encompassing southern Shelby County, later this summer or early fall.
