School Board Welcomes New Members, District 2 Seat Open



The Cheatham County School Board is welcoming its newest members.


In the August 4, 2022 election, Jimmy Harden was elected to represent District 4 and Robert Epps was elected to represent District 5. In addition, incumbent John Patrick was elected to represent District 1.


A swearing-in ceremony for the three will be held Aug. 31 at the Cheatham County Circuit Courtroom and they will take office September 1.


Due to redistricting, Patrick is moving from District 2 to District 1. Therefore, there is now a vacancy in District 2, which includes the East Cheatham/Joelton communities.


Voters will elect a new District 2 School Board member in the Nov. 8 election, and the winner will serve the remaining two-year term. The Cheatham County Election Commission will soon announce when petitions for this seat can be picked up and returned.
