He was recently appointed to the San Dieguito High School board but he's now facing an effort to remove him, reportedly over his politics.
Say What? Ty Humes made history as the first person of color to join the board after his unanimous appointment April 22nd. He's a district parent and former president of the Del Mar Schools Education Foundation.

Humes told me he didn't expect the blowback to his appointment but the pressure is on. Listen to the full interview below:
