An employee of the Jackson County School District was arrested on an embezzlement charge Saturday.
Melanie Pankonin, 37, was vice president of the Grid Iron Club, a nonprofit group that was raising money for the St. Martin High School football team, Sheriff Mike Ezell said in a press release.
Ezell said Pankonin embezzled $10,000 to $15,000 and other merchandise from the club.
Pankonin also was a secretary at St. Martin Upper Elementary School. She is being held in the Jackson County jail awaiting an initial court appearance.
