There are a lot of changes coming to the Beaufort County School Board after Tuesday's election. In District 3, incumbent Michael Rivers beat out the board's chairman Fred Washington, Jr. and another candidate in the race for a newly drawn seat.

"Closing the achievement gap, trying to secure adequate funding for the district, continuing to listen to my constituents and trying to make a difference."
