REDDING, Calif - As the scholastic year is wrapping up and students are preparing for summer, Enterprise High School is entering into what could be a long investigation into the finances of the former athletic booster club members.

In a statement principal Ryan Johnson says in part “In early April, EHS administration received information from two past board members that indicated a possible mishandling of EHS sports boosters funds.

Upon receipt of that information and a preliminary review, school officials contacted the district office and the Redding Police Department for assistance.

Currently, a comprehensive audit is being organized in order to investigate this preliminary evidence.”

Johnson, who isn’t allowed to go on camera, sat down with Action News Now on Tuesday to discuss what this means for the future of student-athletes.

He adds during the district's investigation they found the booster had some outstanding bills that were not paid and were substantially low on funds.

Which is a problem for student-athletes because the booster’s goal is to raise money for the students to help pay for uniforms, equipment, and scholarships.

So far the district says they'll try and help pay for some of the bills.

But parents are now also stepping help to help new members raise the money so the student-athletes don’t have to suffer next year.
