Dr. Regina Hedgeman Johnson Glynn County Board of Education, District 4 I am a 30-year veteran, accomplished educator, facilitator and trainer in Glynn County schools. I am a community servant, civic leader, parent, and grandparent committed to advancing and advocating for quality, policy-driven education that empowers educators and supports families to positively impact student learning.
Dr. Markisha Butler Glynn County Board of Education, At-Large, Post 1 Leadership is inclusive, and I plan to put the public back into public education. I am a champion and a graduate of Glynn County public schools. I have a personal interest in preserving and improving the quality of education for all.

Glynn County Board of Commissioners, District 3 Barbara Baisden has taught in Glynn County schools for 25 years. Although she retired in 2010, she still subs regularly around the District.
A Brunswick native, she was the first teacher of the year honored at Satilla Elementary School in 1998. “Children have been my life for many, many years. They give me back as much as I have given them.” She thinks it’s critical to give children as much one-on-one time as possible, to find out what their true needs are.
