New dispute at Charlotte Catholic: ousted principal's use of funds
June 20, 2014
Officials at Charlotte Catholic High School in North Carolina remain at odds over the use of funds by an ousted school principal.
The Charlotte Catholic High School Foundation has told donors that Jerry Healy, who resigned as principal in May, had admitted to “making personal use of funds held by the foundation.” Healy’s lawyers, however, argue that while the former principal had not followed proper procedure in documenting expenses, he had used the funds for the benefit of students and their families.
Charlotte Catholic High School was the focus of controversy earlier this year, when students and parents objected to an address on human sexuality delivered by Sister Jane Dominic Laurel. School officials eventually apologized for the presentation, saying that although the address was fully in accord with Church teaching, the speaker may have misused some data on homosexuality.
