Auditor seeks repayment of $58K

The state auditor’s office is giving a former Coahoma Community College employee 30 days to repay nearly $58,000 after accusing her of billing the school for travel expenses ineligible for reimbursement.

The auditor’s office issued a demand letter Thursday to Hazeltine Woods-Fouche, a former grant writer and administrator for the school, to repay $36,432.52 in unauthorized travel reimbursements, $16,937.26 in interest and $4,435.68 in fees.

If the $57,805.46 isn’t repaid in the given time, her case will be turned over to the state attorney general’s office for the filing of possible civil charges against her, the auditor’s office said Monday.

Woods-Fouche said she’s innocent.
