Sensitive information about dozens of Ohio County graduates was posted online by the third-party website

Representatives from the site admit it posted uncensored tax forms it obtained from the IRS about Ohio County Wells Education Fund scholarship recipients. Social security numbers and addresses from 2009-2011 recipients were exposed.

It was brought to the attention of the school board after a parent found it online. Brian Decker, Ohio County Schools CFO, said he’s contacted Foundation Center and the information has been redacted.

The Foundation Center said Wednesday it’s not sure how long the information has been online. It hopes to have an answer by Thursday.
