The former executive director of the Midwestern Intermediate Unit IV, which provides educational services to school districts in Butler, Lawrence and Mercer counties, was charged today with theft from a federally funded program.
The charge filed in U.S. District Court accused Cecelia H. Yauger, 56, of Grove City, of using an American Express card provided by the intermediate unit for an unspecified amount of non-business spending.
Ms. Yauger, according to the charges, "did not retain receipts, nor did she submit travel vouchers for any expenses during her tenure as executive director," which ran from July 1, 2007, through April 24, 2013.
The charges indicated that she "did steal property worth at least $5,000," meeting federal court jurisdiction requirements.
Ms. Yauger could not be reached for immediate comment.
