Four of five Republicans New Hanover County School Board candidates head to November election


NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- Four of five Republicans will advance to the general election for New Hanover County School Board.

Incumbent Don Hayes was the top vote getter, followed by former New Hanover County manager Bruce Shell.

"It's important to give something back," Shell said. "I have always had a passion for education. If you think about it, there is nothing more important than educating children that become our future leaders."

Incumbents Ed Higgins and Janice Cavenaugh finished ahead of Jim Brumit.

Three Democrats also await this fall for the four open seats.
