The former associate director of fraternity and sorority life at Clemson University is accused of stealing more than $33,000 from a student organization he led.

University officials and police said Eli Ker, 29, of Easley was charged with breach of trust with fraudulent intent, value $10,000 or more. He was arrested on Friday.

Between Aug. 29, 2011 and Aug. 29, 2012, Ker allegedly converted approximately $33,820 to his personal use and created false bank statements from the Panhellenic Recruitment bank account, according to his arrest warrant.

Authorities said the stolen funds did not belong Clemson University or state funds.

Ker was associate director for fraternity and sorority life at Clemson University from Jan. 2006 to Sept. 10, 2012. In 2007, he was named the Student Affairs Employee of the Year by the Board of Trustees.

Ker's arrest came from a State Law Enforcement Division and Clemson University investigation that began in August after a university employee noticed irregularities in a bank statement and contacted the university police.

Ker appeared in Clemson University Municipal Court on Friday and was released on a personal recognizance bond of $10,000, school officials said.
