A former Clemson employee has been arrested for stealing funds from the school.
Clemson University Police arrested 29-year-old Eli A. Ker of Easley on Friday and charged him with Breach of Trust with Fraudulent Intent. Ker was employed by Clemson as the Associate Director for Fraternity and Sorority Life.
