Oregon Secretary of State Kate Brown is working with Mt. Hood Community College as it investigates possible misuse of school funds. Andrea Cantu-Schomus is the Communications Director for the Secretary of State. She says Mt. Hood approached the Secretary after the school had begun its investigation.
"This actually came from Mt. Hood Community College. They began their internal investigation and then some concerns were brought to the Secretary of State's office as well," says Cantu-Schomus.
Neither the Secretary of State nor Mt. Hood Community College would provide details about the investigation. Cantu-Schomus says they hope to reach a conclusion in two to three months.
