The principal of TNT Academy has been let go from the non-traditional, private Stone Mountain school less than a week after video of her racially-charged comment at a graduation ceremony went viral.

Georgia NAACP president Francys Johnson confirmed to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Nancy Gordeuk “has been released.” Johnson, a civil rights attorney, said the organization planned to issue a statement Thursday morning.

WXIA-TV reported Dr. Heidi Anderson, chair of the board of directors of TNT Academy, wrote in a letter to the Gwinnett County NAACP that the board had voted to fire Gordeuk.

“In light of recent events, the board of directors of TNT Academy has moved to dismiss Nancy Gordeuk as principal,” Anderson said. “During the coming transition, we will continue to prioritize support for our most recent graduates. Moreover, we will continue our commitment to providing students with the best educational classes, transcription services and academic credit recovery possible.”
