Cairo- 15 Beta Club students were thrown out of the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Atlanta on February 4th for posession of alcohol.

     A police officer driving past the hotel noticed one of the students trying to "balcony hop." The alcohol was found when he went to investigate.

     Grady Schools Superintendent Steve Wooten says a hearing officer will be hired to ensure impartiality. "We wanted to be sure that it was done according to law, above the board, no local politics involved. So we decided to go outside the system and hire a hearing officer," he says.

     Two teachers have been placed on administrative leave in connection with the incident. But Wooten says he can't discuss that because it's a personnel matter.
