College head to reimburse school for wedding costs

Officials at a Georgia university say the college president plans to reimburse the school for costs of a state-owned bus that was used to carry guests of a private wedding at his home.

Georgia Regents University spokeswoman Christen Carter acknowledged the use of university resources, including the bus and GRU police officers for security at the wedding for president Ricardo Azziz’s niece, Breeanna Beckhamn and Brian Straessle.

The Augusta Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/17UADDL) that Beckham and Straessle held their wedding Saturday evening on the grounds of the Azziz residence, which is property of the University Board of Regents.

She said the shuttle bus and the driver were on duty for about 11 hours Saturday at a rate of $36 per hour. Carter said the entire cost for university resources was $416.
