The Floyd County Republican Party has endorsed Virgel H. Allen to run as a write-in candidate for School Board against incumbent James Ingram in the November 3, 2015 election. Ingram represents the Little River District.

The action was taken Friday night during a meeting of the Republican Party at the Jessie Peterman Memorial Library in Floyd.

Allen is currently serving as a Floyd County Supervisor for the Little River District. He announced earlier this year he would not be seeking reelection. Eddie Worth, the Republican candidate, and Linda DeVito Kuchenbuch, an independent, are seeking that seat.
