Nicki Gregg prevailed in the only contested race for Sisters School Board on May 16, taking 57.6 of the vote according to the unofficial tally of the Deschutes County Clerk.
Gregg is a parent, teacher and budget committee member and ran on the assertion that, "It is important to have someone on the board that has teaching experience in a public school classroom. My experience as a parent in our schools and my background as a teacher makes me uniquely qualified for this position."
She defeated entrepreneur and middle school parent David Wentworth to gain the seat. Jay Wilkins and incumbent Amanda Clark were elected after running unopposed.
