McGrath

From Page 3

$30,000 in Booster funds

were missing from August

2017 through April 2019.

The investigation reportedly

determined McGrath

presented the Boosters

with a Booster account

spreadsheet that she created

and submitted to the district,

and that several submitted

reports contained

forged signatures of members

of the athletic club

board.

McGrath was arrested at

her home, according to police.

She is being held at the

Will County Adult Detention

Facility on a $200,000

bond.

As previously reported

by The Messenger, former

LWC Athletic Director

Matt Lyke resigned

Aug. 22 after holding the

position for three years at

LWC after eight at nowshuttered

LW North. Lyke

is now listed as the interim

director of activities

at Homewood-Flossmoor

High School on HF’s website.

D210 Superintendent

Scott Tingley issued the

following statement:

“While following established

procedures for the

development of the annual

budget, Lincoln-Way 210

administration identified

discrepancies in certain

revenue accounts in the

Lincoln-Way Central Athletic

Department.

“As a result of the investigation,

District administration

has implemented

several new internal controls

that focus on cash

handling procedures in

order to help deter and detect

fraud and theft going

forward.

“1. Increased Segregation

of Duties in Cash

Handling – deposits will

be handled by two employees

until counted and

deposit receipts have been

filled out. All deposit slips

are pre-numbered so the

District can track and control

access to the forms. All

cash deposits are placed in

a tamper proof bag once

dual counted and verified.

Finally, a separate copy of

the deposit slip is sent to

the District business office

for reconciliation purposes.

“2. Event sales now use

pre-numbered tickets and

a ticket/cash reconciliation

must be performed

and turned into the District

business office the same

day as the event.

“3. Outside groups,

coaches, and activity sponsors

are required to verify

deposits and expenditures

directly in the District accounting

system to ensure

accuracy.

“The District has turned

the financial loss into our

insurance and the money

will be replenished into the

Boosters account.”
