Former Decatur Board of Education member Valarie Wilson has entered the race to become the Democratic nominee for state school superintendent.

The qualifying deadline was at noon Friday, March 7. Wilson, who decided not to seek another term on the City Schools of Decatur Board of Education in 2013, is running against Tarnisha Dent, Denise Freeman, Jurita Forehand Mays, Alisha Thomas Morgan and Rita Robinzine in the May 20 primary.

Wilson is Executive Director of the nonprofit Atlanta BeltLine Partnership. In addition to having served on the city board of education, she has served as president of the Georgia School Boards Association, and is a member of the Decatur Education Foundation and the Decatur Arts Alliance.

Editor’s note: An earlier version of this story said the qualifying deadline was May 7. It was March 7.
