>Community members named to audit panel
Two community members have been named to the Sweet Home School District's Internal Audit Committee.
Superintendent Geoffrey Hicks announced that William Stoj and Judy Ehman will join Dirk Rabenold and Heidi Dizer, two school board members, on the volunteer panel.
Hicks introduced Stowe and Ehman at Tuesday's Board of Education meeting. Stoj, of Rosemont Drive, Amherst, has two children in Sweet Home schools. He is a certified public accountant with Brody, Weiss, Zucarelli, and Urbanek. Ehman, of Willow Lane, Amherst, is a retired teacher who taught business in Niagara Falls schools.
After a pair of fraud cases on Long Island, the state now requires all school districts to have internal audit committees. The committees are required to review separate audits prepared by internal and external auditors.
