School district pays up to former principal

NATCHEZ, Miss.- Former Suzie B. West Elementary School principal Cindy Idom sued the Natchez-Adams School district for damages concerning a wrongful termination. 

She won her case in September of 2015 and now the district is paying up. They will pay about $127,500 and the insurance company will pick up the remaining $625,000.

Idom was forced into retirement by former superintendent Frederick Hill and former deputy superintendent Tanisha Smith. The federal civil suit claimed the two created a hostile work environment, including racial discrimination against a white employee.

Hill was ordered to pay $75,000 in damages, while Smith was ordered $25,000. However, because of their contracts they are not held responsible for those finances reports The Natchez Democrat.
