Valdosta -  The president of Valdosta Technical College has been asked to take a paid leave as the state investigates his management style and college finances.

Dr. Robert Abene took the president's job in December.

Officials with the Department of Technical and Adult Education say they will conduct a management assessment to assure Val Tech is operating at maximum efficiency and properly responding to the needs of the community.

Vice President EJ Harris will serve as acting president.

The Department of Audit and Accounts is also investigating some fraudulent charges that appeared on Abene's state credit card.  The card was reportedly misplaced when the questionable charges were made.
