"Ms. Schooley has withdrawn from the Grand Island Public Schools school board race, which leaves a vacancy on the ballot for the November 8, 2022 general election," said Hall County Election Commissioner Tracy Overstreet.
Schooley and Tim Mayfield filed as Ward B candidates for the May 10, 2022 primary election. Two candidates were eligible to advance to the November 8, 2022 general election.
