Three people are vying for two seats on the Galax School Board this year.
Board chairman Ray Kohl and member Helen Kyle, whose seats are set to expire June 30, are seeking reappointment, and community member Jerrold Bennett hopes to be selected.
During a public hearing at Galax City Council on Feb. 27, Kyle, Kohl and Bennett each explained why they should serve on the school board. Each candidate also submitted a letter of interest to the city manager to be considered for selection.
School board members are appointed by council.
