An Ohio State faculty member is on paid administrative leave after allegations that he misused a student organization credit card.
Brett Mayo, adviser of Students for Recycling, is accused of charging personal expenses to an emergency credit card. Mayo said in an e-mail that he was asked not to discuss the issue, and declined comment.
According to a Jan. 6 OSU police report, Joanna Podrasky, president of Students for Recycling, reported $2,900.55 missing. No charges have been filed.
Because of the pending investigation, Podrasky declined comment on the issue, and an OSU police search warrant was not available.
Mayo is also the associate director of Energy Management and Sustainability for the OSU Office of Student Life.
Molly Calhoun, assistant vice president for Student Life, said Mayo has been an OSU employee since 1999, and has been on paid administrative leave since Jan. 7.
Mayo, a drummer for local band The Toll, was featured in a Lantern article about the Newport Music Hall in 2001.
The band participated in “Andyman-a-thon,” a memorial concert for the late local radio personality, at the Lifestyle Communities Pavilion on Nov. 24.
