OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Republican superintendent of Shawnee Public Schools says she plans to run for state superintendent in 2022.
April Grace announced on Tuesday her plans to run for the GOP nomination. Grace is a longtime educator who has been superintendent in Shawnee since 2016.
Current Republican Superintendent Joy Hofmeister can’t run for the seat again because of term limits.
Also running for the seat is Republican John Cox, the superintendent of Peggs Public Schools in northeast Oklahoma. Cox ran previously as a Democrat against Hofmeister, but switched his registration to Republican.
