District 2 will have a new representative on the Roane County Board of Education after this month.
Danny Wright finished ahead of incumbent Frank Mee in last week’s election to take one of the district’s two seats.
“I’m just honored that the people would give me the opportunity to serve on the school board,” Wright said. “I look forward to working with the other members and the County Commission to enhance education of the youth in Roane County.”
Wright finished with 1,017 votes compared to 969 for Mee.
