WHITEVILLE, NC (WWAY) -- The Whiteville mother accused of taking her daughter to a street fight and then cheering her on is no longer an employee of Columbus County Schools. Monday night the Columbus County Board of Education spent part of its monthly meeting behind close doors to discuss Aneshia Cartret's employment status.
"Our Board of Education this evening has accepted Ms. Cartret's resignation," Columbus County Schools Superintendent Dan Strickland said. "She was an NC WISE coordinator at South Columbus High School."
At the time of the street fight between Shelby Cartret and Alex Anne Fipps, Aneshia Cartret was an employee at South Columbus High, the same school her daughter Shelby attends and the other girl involved in the fight.
On Monday county school officials said Cartret submitted her resignation on Friday, and that the board has accepted her resignation. Strickland could not say what Cartret's resignation letter specifically said due to the fact that it is a personnel issue.
As for Cartret, she is currently facing a charge of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and a charge of public disturbance. She is scheduled to appear in court April 12.
