Alvarez, an alumnus of Grissom High School, served as president of the Challenger Elementary School Parent-Teachers Association (PTA), where her three children attend. In 2020, she was named “Volunteer of the Year” by the Huntsville Council of PTAs.

Ferrell did not endorse any of the candidates in the second round.

According to Tuesday night’s unofficial election results, voter turnout hovered just above 10%.
