Muscogee County School Board to Hire Jonai Senior

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

The Muscogee County School Board voted on Monday to unanimously hire the daughter of board member Athavia Senior, after she recused herself from the vote.

The vote was held to correct what School Board President Rob Varner called a honest mistake. 

In an earlier vote, Athavia Senior violated state law when she neglected to recuse herself and voted to approve a list of job candidates which included her daughter.

Varner said Jonai Senior, 26, is extremely qualified for the job and will make a great teacher.

She was hired as a language arts teacher at Fort Middle School.
