Who will run for the Waynesboro School Board in November? So far, only one person has filed a report

WAYNESBORO – There are three seats up for election on the Waynesboro School Board in November. Two of the three incumbents told The News Leader they are seeking re-election.

Erika Smith is currently the Division B representative and has officially filed, according to Waynesboro Registrar Lisa Jeffers. Smith also confirmed to The News Leader that she is running and said a more formal announcement will be made soon.

In Ward A, Diana Williams told The News Leader she plans to run for office as well and will file soon.

Both Smith and Williams were appointed to the board in 2017 to fill unexpired terms. Since then, they have both won election to the Waynesboro school board.

The general seat is also up for election this year. Rick Wheeler currently holds that seat. He won election to the board in 2016 and was re-elected in 2020. The News Leader reached out to Wheeler about his plans for November but has not heard back.
