The school board serving Northland Pines School District in Eagle River, Wis., accepted the resignation of athletic director Brian Margelofsky late last week after it was discovered he had been stealing food items from a concessions stand.
According to WXPR Public Radio in nearby Rhinelander, suspicion arose when food service workers noticed some items were missing from the cooler. They notified administration, and an investigation was opened.
Security cameras showed at least eight incidents of Margelofsky “removing items from the concessions stand and freezer/kitchen area during times in the evening when school was not in session.” The coolers were being used by food service to store a la carte items and milk since they weren’t being used by the athletic department at the time.
Administrator Scott Foster added that Margelofsky, who had worked for the district for 14 years, exercised “poor judgment.”
The estimated value of the items taken was less than $100, WXPR reported.
