Richland One School Board Candidates

Ashlye Wilkerson
“It’s a truth I lived as a student at H. B. Rhame Elementary School, St. Andrews Middle School, and Columbia High School, a truth instilled in me by dedicated teachers and administrators who believed the same. After earning my BS from Winthrop University and MAT from Hampton University, I returned to the district as a kindergarten and first-grade teacher at Hyatt Park Elementary School. Then, in 2010, I left the classroom determined to improve the educational experience for all students, a mission I’ve pursued relentlessly as a professor of education, university trustee, tutor, educational consultant, children’s author, community leader, and small business owner.”

Jonathan Milling

Johnny Ray 
“former teacher, veteran, district volunteer and a pastor at Second Nazareth Baptist Church in Columbia.” 

Michelle Drayton

Lady June Cole 
“A lifelong educator with degrees from Harvard and Boston College, Lady June Cole started out with a somewhat lofty goal: to become “one of the best educators ever.” After more than 20 years as a teacher and reading specialist, she became involved with curriculum and professional development. Today she’s a leader in higher education, where she seeks to “cultivate transformative habits of mind in our students and champion the cause of knowledge as power.”
