Current School District Superintendent Served Demand by State Auditor for Misspending at Previous School District

JACKSON, Miss. – The former Superintendent of the Benoit School District, Dr. Beverly Culley of Greenville, was served a demand in the amount of $69, 997.31 by agents from the Mississippi Office of the State Auditor. She is currently the Superintendent of West Bolivar Consolidated School District. In 2014, without approval, Dr. Culley authorized payments to herself which violated Mississippi law.

State Auditor Stacey Pickering said, “The Auditor’s office is the watchdog for all Mississippi taxpayers. My office will continue to pursue the recovery of misspent funds on behalf of shoolchildren and taxpayers in our state.”

The amount of the issued demand covers the sum of payments made, interest, and the cost of recovery.
