District treasurer retires
After more than 14 years of working with the Cardinal Local School District, Treasurer Merry Lou “MLou” Knuckles retired. Ms. Knuckles came to the district in 2006 from the Ohio State Auditor’s Office. Under her guidance, the district received multiple Auditor of State Awards for clean and accurate record-keeping. Entities receive the award for filing timely financial reports in accordance with GAAP, as well as receiving a “clean” audit report by the state.
In addition to being the district treasurer, Ms. Knuckles also spent several years as the middle school cheerleading advisor. She is also an alumni of the district.
Staff had a chance to celebrate Ms. Knuckles and wished her well during a retirement open house at the board of education office on Dec. 16. All COVID-19 protocols were in place. Her last official day on the job was Dec. 31. Julia Rozsnyai is the district’s new treasurer, and her official first day was Jan. 1.
