"I think it's the year of the woman. I think people were ready for change, and I was lucky enough to be part of that movement," she said.

Diyonne McGraw30,15152.36%$177,381.42$169,533.07

McGraw said there are many things she would like to implement right away.

“I’ve already written my first 100 days in office. Right away put together a reading and comprehension skills task force. We must begin early. We have to close this achievement gap, that is number one."

McGraw in taking over from the retiring Eileen Roy will become the third African American woman currently on the Alachua County School Board, along with Tina Certain and Leanetta McNealy.

McNealy said she is excited to continue to serve in the District 4 seat.

“I’m an incumbent," McNealy said, "so it's not like this is my first rodeo. I've been on the board since 2012, so one of the top priorities would definitely be closing the gap between our white and our black students.”

Incumbent Darnell had served in the position since 2006. Watson Jr. faces a write-in challenger in November, but is poised to become Alachua County’s first African American sheriff.

"I have a responsibility and an obligation to do good and move this position forward," he said, "with a level of professionalism and stewardship that will honor the legacy of those who came before me to make this first possible."
