Only 2 Races Contested as Bartlett Picks School Board

She attended schools in Bartlett, and "I want to see them be like they were when I was there."

"I'm very open-minded and willing to listen to parents and their ideas," Berry said of her style. "I can work with diverse groups of people. ... With my financial background, that can help us be financially conservative."

Shores, a 31-year-old corporate and securities project assistant, has two children attending public schools. …
