After the election, the face of the Monroe City School Board is changing. A few long-serving members are out, and new faces are in.
Two new faces will serve on the Monroe City School Board—Glynn Ludley and Clarence Sharp.
Ludley defeated long-time incumbent Brenda Shelling, in a stunning upset.
“The people have spoken,” said Shelling, who says she fought a hard campaign, and has no hard feelings despite losing her seat. She vows to never run again for re-election in an interview with NBC 10 after learning of the loss.
Clarence Sharp will also replace Jesse Handy, who is retiring from District 4.
Shelling has served on the school board for 12 years.
Verbon Muhammad will also join the ranks as a school board member. He took over Stephanie Smith’s seat, after she resigned following a legal controversy over where she claimed to have lived.
