Juice Minus? Joel Herbst Resigns From Broward School Post


Joel Herbst, South Area Superintendent for the Broward County school district, has resigned. This comes as no surprise as Herbst was passed over in last year’s superintendent search. Not to worry, sources tell RED BROWARD Herbst will stay in the educational field. Herbst also sells a vitamin supplement in his spare time.

One question remains, did Herbst ever talk about the secret money fund at South Plantation. Reports claim the fund existed during Herbst’s tenure as South Plantation High School principal.

“Basile, who has been at the school about four years, told district officials he didn’t realize the account was in violation of district and state policies. Herbst said it was used for ‘the welfare of the school’ and in keeping with the philanthropic mission of the PTO.” read more at the Sun-Sentinel

His information would be helpful to investigators trying to determine what the heck was going on over there. Godspeed Joel!
