Union Public Schools would like to welcome its newest member to the Board of Education, representing Zone 1: Joey Reyes.
Joey Reyes, pictured, edged out Kasey Magness by a 229-205 count to succeed outgoing Zone 1 representative Jeff Bennett.
Reyes, president of the Peters Elementary School Parent-Teacher Association, has also been involved with the Union Baseball Booster Club. The bilingual insurance salesman is also the founder of a nonprofit organization and has been a foster parent since 2013.
The campuses of Boevers, McAuliffe and Rosa Parks elementary schools are within the boundaries of Union’s Zone 1, along with portions of the attendance areas for Grove, Jefferson, Moore, Ochoa and Peters elementary schools.
Former Board of Education member Lisa Ford also won her election in her bid for a seat on the Broken Arrow City Council. Lisa Ford defeated Mayor Craig Thurmond in Ward 2 by a 4,811-3,335 margin.
