The onboarding process is complete for the Coalition board’s three newest members! This spring, Coalition members elected Garrett McNeill, Michael Way, and Shelly Bullard to the board, along with returning member, Jonathan Bryant, who will serve as chair.

All three new board members are leaders in the broader charter community. We’re grateful for their expertise and leadership as well as their willingness to serve the Coalition and North Carolina’s charter movement.
