NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The Boys and Girls Clubs of Middle Tennessee has given $30,000 back to Metro Schools after a NewsChannel 5 investigation first revealed the money was not used as originally intended.
The Boys and Girls Clubs received the money in two separate grants from MNPS in 2018 and 2019.
The youth organization had told Metro Schools that it would pay for summer camps for Metro students run by the youth baseball program, RBI.
But, as it turned out, there were no summer camps. And, RBI used the money for its own needs.
The head of the RBI program at the time was a long time high-ranking administrator with Metro Schools.
Dr. Tony Majors was later pushed out after the head of schools discovered Majors' conflict of interest and an audit revealed that he had misrepresented how the MNPS grant money was being used.
