Smith edges out Grove in School Board race

Saturday’s runoff election was a tight race for School Board District 10 with Alvin Dale Smith defeating Becky Brown Grove.

Complete but unofficial results are: Smith earned 1,546 votes, or 51 percent, and Grove earned 1,462 votes, or 49 percent.

Smith has 27 years experience in education, holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Social Sciences and a Master of Education in Educational Leadership, and a +30 certification in Special Education.

He is married to Susan Abston Smith and they have two daughters, Rebecca Smith of Cedar Park, Texas and Suzanne Smith of DeQuincy; and one grandson, Jacob Cupstid, a senior at DeQuincy High School.

Smith will be replacing Jim Karr who is retiring at the end of December after 24 years as District 10 School Board representative.
