A former South High School teacher who resigned last year over allegations of inappropriate behavior with students has found work as a grant coordinator with the regional homeland security agency.
Larisa Oringdulph was named the South All-Hazards Regional Homeland Security Coordinator on Monday. The job pays $48,000.
Pueblo County Sheriff Kirk Taylor said Oringdulph’s hire was not a decision by his department but by a commission made up of representatives from Pueblo, Custer, Huerfano, Fremont and Las Animas counties.
Taylor described the job as an annual contract position with the South All-Hazards Region and, essentially, a conduit for the federal homeland security funds that get passed through the state and into counties to be used for various projects.
