    Latoya Holiday

    Latoya Holiday tallied 2,911 votes to comfortably finish in second place in a five-person race for Sun Prairie School Board on Tuesday.

    She will be joined on the board by Diana McFarland (3,663 votes) and incumbent Sun Prairie School Board member Steve Schroeder (2676 votes) if no recount takes place. Schroeder finished just seven votes ahead of Lisa Goldsberry in an incredibly tight race for the third and final spot on the board.

    “I’m very grateful to the voters of Sun Prairie for choosing me to represent this community. I’m humbled and ready to work for our kids and our families,” Holiday tells Madison365. “Thanks to my colleagues who ran with me, especially those with whom I will be serving. I’m looking forward to great things happening in Sun Prairie and major strides ahead, especially for our families of color and others who have been underserved. Thank you, Sun Prairie!”

    Holiday is an educational policy specialist at UW-Madison School of Education and a former special assistant to the state superintendent. She earned a bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a master’s degree in educational policy studies at UW-Madison.
