Ms. Martha Rose took weeks of vacation and never deducted them, went to conferences and declared she was there longer than she actually was, misused federal funds, had no performance review for 18 years, gave herself a raise every two years and provided obvious deficient financial reports, and now the board is going to reward her with a $106,000 payoff.
