The National Scholastic Press Association, which organized April’s high school journalism convention in San Francisco, has fired its executive director, Tom Rolnicki, and its associate director, Ann Akers, due to a lack of adequate financial controls in the nonprofit’s organization. Rolnicki “failed to exercise necessary care and prudence in managing financial processes, expense reimbursements and federal tax filings,” a statement from the association said. Chris Worthington, former managing editor and former business and technology editor of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, has been appointed NSPA’s interim Executive Director.
