ATLANTA – Former Westlake High School PTA President Kimberly Wright is back in the news. In May, parents accused her of collecting more than $25,000 from families for a senior class trip to Disney World, then cancelling the trip—without giving refunds. She’s been arrested and charged with theft; Wright claims she intends to repay everyone, but so far she’s only given money back to 7 out of 53 families. A Fulton County magistrate delayed her preliminary hearing on the charges to November 30. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and WSB-TV have more.
By the way, this news comes on the heels of the arrest of Cobb County parent Janis Riley Allen, who allegedly used her position as booster club treasurer at Osborne High School to skim off $10,000 in concession-stand sales. To see post on this, click here.
