Examiner, 21 Dec 2006 (Myers).
A woman who was forced out of her job as top finance officer for Prince George’s County schools after a $1 million payroll scandal has been given a six-figure job to help repair the District’s public schools.
Wynette Wilkins was fired from Prince George’s County schools in October 2005 after an audit discovered that employees had been overpaid by more than $1 million.
She is now the accounting systems manager for the D.C. finance office, assigned to the D.C. Public Schools, said Maryann Young, spokeswoman for the D.C. finance office.
Wilkins is paid $106,000 per year.
