BISD fires its comptroller
BEAUMONT - On Thursday night, Beaumont Independent School District board members voted 6-0 to fire the district's comptroller, Sharika Allison.
The decision comes on the heels of an investigation that someone set up bogus accounts and diverted district funds.
Last month, FBI agents were at Allison's home.
The district has also discussed firing its chief financial officer, Devin McCraney. FBI agents were also at his home during the investigation into district funds being diverted into bogus accounts.
