The principal of Greensburg Central Catholic has been fired after she allegedly admitted violating state law and church policies following an audit of the school's finances.

Denise Myers had been suspended with pay since Sept. 23 before the Greensburg diocese announced she had been fired on Thursday from the school.

Although a diocesan statement said Myers "admitted violations of state law and diocesan policy" a diocesan spokesman, Jerry Zufelt said the audit findings have not been turned over to police. Myers has not been charged with any crimes.

The diocese won't describe the audit's findings.

Students and parents continued their support for Myers on Friday by posting signs and messages outside the school.

Myers’ labor attorney told Channel 11’s Joe Holden that it’s unfortunate the diocese has put out inaccurate information. He said he’s reviewing what his next step will be.
