PITTSBORO–There will be no State Bureau of Investigation probe of the Chatham County School Board.  According to the Chatham News & Record,  after a state Auditor’s report on the school board and the North Carolina Athletic Association’s handling of a retirement issue, Noelle Talley, Public Information Officer for the N.C. Department of Justice, said the SBI consulted with the District Attorney and determined that a criminal investigation was not necessary.  The NCHSAA officials were looking for a way for Rick Strunk, the associate commissioner for the organization to earn his full retirement benefits.  Strunk had 26 years years in the pension system and was less than four years from retirement before the agreement.
