City schools director lauds finance chief as board approves system audit


The Elizabethton Board of Education voted unanimously to approve the finding-free audit of the 2012-2013 financial statements and the second quarter budget amendment during a brief meeting Tuesday night.

The audit of the system’s financial documents for the fiscal year ending June 30 by Blackburn, Childers and Stegall found no deficiencies or noncompliances for the system, and the system was found to be a low-risk auditee.

Superintendent Ed Alexander acknowledged the positive audit results were the hard work of Finance Director Beth Wilson and the rest of the finance department.

“She does a tremendous job,” Alexander said. “We appreciate what they do. She’s conservative as heck. She is honest beyond the point of unbelief.”

Board Chair Rita Booher agreed with that assessment and noted Wilson received “rave reviews” during the audit process.
