The Jackson County Board of Education held a special-called meeting on June 21, 2019 to fill the vacancy created by the passing of Cecil Gant.

This was the second attempt of the board to fill the seat with a deadline of June 23rd looming, after which the state would have stepped in to fill the vacancy for them. The board nominated the same candidates as the last meeting. Board member Mike Matthews nominated Chris Knight. Board member Charles West nominated Linda Smith. Board President Chad Gorham nominated Dwight Griffith. The motion to appoint Linda Smith was not seconded and died. The motion to appoint Chris Knight was seconded, and passed with three votes. If accepted by Knight, he will be filling the vacancy effective immediately.
