Trezevant High Forfeits Football Games, Launches Full-school Audit After Reporting Grade Discrepancies
Discrepancies found on Trezevant High School football players’ transcripts are leading to game forfeitures and an internal investigation by Shelby County Schools, the district announced Thursday.
SCS Chief of Communications Natalia Powers said players’ report card grades did not match grades on transcripts. It’s unknown if the discrepancies are limited to the football team, she said, so a full-school audit is underway.
Superintendent Dorsey Hopson issued a statement saying Trezevant Principal Ronnie Mackin voluntarily reported the findings to the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association, the state governing body for high school athletics, on Thursday after an “internal academic review.”
