Bryan Beverly, 36, won a seat on the Lansing Board of Education last Tuesday, beating out another newcomer candidate, Thomas Morgan, 34, by a margin of 9,115 votes to Morgan’s 8,778 votes.
Two of the spots on the School Board were won by incumbents Shirley Rodgers and Guillermo Lopez. Beverly was able to secure the final spot on the school board, which was vacated by Charles Ford, who chose not to run for reelection this year. Beverly said during his campaign his team did a lot of work on social media, which played a large part in his campaign. “We were very heavy on social media during the campaign,” Beverly said.
