LOGAN — Utah State University fired its executive director of enrollment services after an internal audit revealed irregularities in scholarship funds, a spokesman announced Wednesday.
Jennifer Twiss, 34, was terminated by the university Tuesday and the audit has been turned over to law enforcement officials, USU spokesman Tim Vitale said. Twiss worked for USU in a full-time capacity since 2002 and was promoted to executive director last year.
"We're regularly doing audits and in this case the auditors decided to look at how scholarships are dispersed and found some irregularities," Vitale said.
He said the investigation is ongoing and officials requested that the university not release details at this time.
In her position, Twiss oversaw the admissions, financial aid, and registrar's offices at USU.
