Incumbents John Bland, Lawrence County School Board, and Robert Pratt, Hoxie School Board, chose not to seek re-election.

Candidates for the Lawrence County School Board are: John Householder, Blake Cox, Billy Lee Baker and Cary G. Massey, all of Walnut Ridge.

Jeff Worlow of Sedgwick and Kenny Lewis of Hoxie will vie for the Hoxie position.

Incumbents Dr. Roger Helms, Hillcrest School District, and Dr. Aaron Murphy, Sloan-Hendrix School District, sought re-election and are unopposed.

Drawing for ballot positions will be held today at 1 p.m. in the conference room of the Lawrence County Courthouse. Candidates and the public are welcome to attend.
