NORTH AUGUSTA — North Augusta Middle School’s PTO treasurer turned herself in to North Augusta Public Safety shortly after 9 a.m. Friday after an investigation into her use of the organization’s funds, according to a news release.
Connie Faye Boisclair, of North Augusta, was arrested on a single charge of breach of trust. The school’s principal, Barry Head, filed a report Jan. 5 after the internal auditor for the school district discovered several financial transactions had been converted by Boisclair by her personal use between May and Jan. 4.
An investigation found that since Boisclair was appointed as treasurer in May, she obtained more than $38,000 from the school’s PTO account without approval.
“Public Safety’s investigation continues because of pending bank statements and various questions yet to be answered,” the news release said.
