Want To Be On School Board?

Dec 14, 2011   //   by Christian Hine   //   Char-Meck Beat, Christian Hine  //  4 Comments

Three new members of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education were sworn into office at the regular board meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 13.  They are Mary T. McCray, Ericka Ellis-Stewart, and Tim Morgan. 

Board members voted 8-0 to elect Ericka Ellis-Stewart as chairperson and voted 8-0 to elect Mary T. McCray as vice-chairperson.

Morgan was previously the District 6 representative and has been elected as an at-large member.  As a result, the District 6 seat is now open and the Board is accepting applications for the position. 

If you are interested in applying for the position, contact the Board of Education Office at 980-343-5139.


  • Don’t waste your time if you’re not asked by a board member to tender your application. This is a matter of serious politics – whoever takes this seat puts one side or the other in the majority. So board members will be asking ‘friends’ to apply. If a supporter of the chair and vice chair wins the seat, then, perhaps, we’ll have a school board, for the first time in decades, which actually cares about education.

    • All one has to do is look at CMC as it is “in reality”. That is all one needs to know about those who have run it for 30 years.

  • which actually cares about education increasing taxes to fund patronage jobs. There fixed for you.

  • Well, if I were visiting my Dad that wekened (he lives in Fort Mill), I’d definitely run this, but I’m not. So, instead I’ll ask how in the world you manage to look so cute running?! I always look like I’m close to death!
