Accused Principal Leaves Post

By  | 

An elementary school principal facing federal embezzlement charges has left her job at W.C. Williams Elementary School in Greenwood, Miss.

Joycelyn Wilson announced Friday that she retired from her job last week.

School Board Attorney Richard Oakes said Wilson resigned. He said that he was unaware of any action by the district to prompt her departure. Oakes said first grade teacher Carolyn Haley will serve as principal.

Wilson and Judy Radcliff, the former principal of was once known as West End Elementary School in Meridian, were indicted in December on charges they conspired with others to embezzle $170,000 in federal grants. All have pleaded not guilty to the charges.
