Dozens of Hamilton County leaders were sworn into office Tuesday. The ceremony was held at the Chattanooga Convention Center. 

The county government leaders at the center of the event included returning county Mayor Jim Coppinger, court clerks, county commissioners and school board members.

School board members shared how they plan to move forward and improve Hamilton County schools.

"A school board member really only has two jobs. One, to supervise the superintendent, and then to make policy," Hamilton County school board member Joe Smith said."

There was also a recent swearing-in ceremony in Bradley County. Steve Lawson is officially the sheriff. He defeated incumbent Sheriff Eric Watson in the primary election in May.
