Olentangy Local School District Treasurer Emily Hatfield and her staff were recently presented with the Auditor of State Award with Distinction in honor of the district’s excellent financial record keeping.
A representative with state auditor's office presented Hatfield with the prestigious award during the April 13, 2017 Olentangy Local Schools Board of Education meeting. The Auditor of State Award is given to local governments and school districts upon completion of a financial audit. Entities that receive the award must meet several criteria, including incurring no findings for recovery, material citations or material weaknesses.
The state audits about 5,700 local governments and public schools every year and only about 5 percent receive the award. Olentangy has earned the award for five consecutive years and 10 times overall.
