The first official business of 2013 for the Oconee County Board of Education will be to welcome a new chairman and board member.
Tom Odom and Mike Burnette will be administered the oath of office right before tonight's work session gets underway. Wayne Bagley, who was unopposed in his bid to stay on the board, will also be sworn in by Judge David Anglin.
