By Matt Gardner
During an Appling County Board of Education (BOE) meeting, held on January 21, the resignation of Erica Pinkney, School Food Service Director, was unanimously accepted. Days after the meeting The Baxley News-Banner received numerous calls from concerned citizens about the possibility of misappropriation of funds related to the area of school food service.
The News-Banner spoke to Superintendent Scarlett Copeland about the issue and was informed that the school system is currently performing audits in this area. It was also reported that Pinkney had been placed on administrative leave prior to her resignation.
