The Westerville City School District Board of Education on June 10, 2019, recognized recent achievements of two Westerville Central High School (WCHS) Track & Field athletes, as well as a state honor awarded to the district’s Office of the Treasurer.
WCHS Senior Lyssa Zepfel and Junior Mabinty Kebe competed June 1, 2019, in the Division 1 State Track and Field Meet, held in Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium at The Ohio State University. Zepfel earned her first state titles in the seated division, winning the 400 and 800, and placing second in the 100. Kebe won the 300-meter hurdles.
Tory Huebner, Central Regional Liaison for the Auditor of State, attended the meeting to present Treasurer/CFO Nicole Marshall with the Auditor of State’s Award with Distinction. This honor is awarded to local governments and school districts whose financial audits meet the following criteria of a “clean” audit report:
- The Entity must file timely financial reports with the Auditor of State’s office in the form of a CAFR (Comprehensive Annual Financial Report);
- The audit report does not contain any findings for recovery, material citations, material weaknesses, significant deficiencies, Single Audit findings or questioned costs;
- The entity’s management letter contains no comments related to ethics referrals, questioned costs less than $10,000, lack of timely report submission, reconciliation, failure to obtain a timely Single Audit, findings for recovery less than $100, public meetings or public records, and no other financial or other concerns.
Marshall credited Assistant Treasurer Laura Hendricks and the dedicated members of the Treasurer’s office for this honor, as well as everyone in the district who receives money, creates purchase orders and safeguards taxpayer funds. Hendricks served as Interim Treasurer during the time period covered by the recent audit.
