HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — The Henrico County School Board elected Rev. Roscoe Cooper to serve as the new Chairman.
Cooper, who represents the Fairfield District, was elected in a 4-1 vote at the school board meeting Thursday afternoon. Marcie Shea will continue to serve as Vice-Chair.
This vote comes after former Chair Micky Ogburn stepped down after facing backlash from a controversial Facebook post.
The post criticized people for “canceling” Dr. Seuss. Ogburn apologized for her comments and said she didn’t read the entire post.
