Auditors said Watkins-Tyree made 204 debit card transactions totaling $28,633 that fell into those categories. They also said the school’s former treasurer, Brian Adams, signed checks to Watkins-Tyree in the amount of $1,427, reimbursing her for certain purchases as well as for per-diem expenses at conferences, despite a lack of supporting documentation.
The audit says because Adams signed off on the reimbursements, he and his bonding company are jointly and severally liable for the $1,427. Adams’ response in the audit was that records to support the payments were given to auditors four years ago. The auditor’s office concluded that was not true.
