LITTLE ROCK, AR - Multiple sources have confirmed to FOX16 News that Little Rock School Board member Michael Peterson passed away Thursday morning at his home.

We’ll have more on this story on FOX16 News at 5, 9 & 10.
Statement from LRSB President Dianne Curry
I was deeply saddened at the sudden death of my colleague and my friend, Michael Pete Peterson. His was a life and career of service above self and building a better future through our children -- first as a school teacher and school administrator, and finally in how he competed for, won, and briefly served on the Little Rock School Board. His entire life was one with great commitment and devotion. His tough, independent spirit will be an inspiration to those of us, in elective office of all types, still doing the people's business. I’m extremely grateful for the time that I was given with him and he will be severely missed by all who knew and loved him.My prayers and condolences go out to his daughter, Brandy, and the rest of his family and his close friends at this very difficult time.
President - LRSB
Member, LRSB, Zone # 7
