One person is officially a candidate for this year's school board election.

Kevin Kenkel, an incumbent, returned his petition to the Mitchell School District business manager on Monday with enough valid signatures to be on the ballot for the June election, according to school Superintendent Joe Graves.

There are two seats up for re-election this year, both of which are three-year terms. Graves said Deb Olson, current board president, also took out a petition to run for re-election.

Prospective candidates must take out a petition from the Mitchell School District's business manager, at 821 N. Capital St. They need 20 valid signatures, and petitions must be filed with the business office by 5 p.m. March 29. Signatures must come from registered voters in the Mitchell School District to be considered valid.

The election is June 7.
