She took office in June during a GSBA meeting in Savannah. She was the president-elect, so it's no surprise.

Ms. Wilson holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in communication from Clark College in Atlanta and did graduate study in public administration at Troy State University. She is the Executive Director for the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership, and serves as the President Elect for the Georgia School Board Association (GSBA).
