FLORESVILLE -- Dr. Jerry Lee Hunkapiller, who for slightly less than two years has served as the superintendent of the Floresville Independent School District (ISD), will be resigning from that position in the coming week. Hunkapiller confirmed this June 21 by telephone.

The resignation has been the subject of rumors in the community following a heated June 17 meeting of the district’s board of trustees. For more about that meeting, read the June 26 print edition of the Wilson County News.

“We just need to get back home closer to the family,” said Hunkapiller, whose family hails from North Texas.

The superintendent said the resignation was not related to a closed-session discussion June 17, which pertained to controversy surrounding a KSAT 12 news story that aired June 3.

Mr. Rethaber needs to be very careful with what he says because his wife is a teacher at this school district, so what he says WILL reflect on her and will be taken into consideration in many things. They don't necessarily run ... More ›

As a native of Floresville, and a former FISD teacher, I can say that the school has changed so much over these years. When I tried to fight for the students, I was in constant "trouble". Yes, I was treated unfairly ... More ›

@ T-Bone: I appreciate the offer. :-) I would be a hypocrite if I ran away from problems instead of dealing with them in a head-on manner. Ambrose Bierce was attributed with the following quote that I believe best describes running ... More ›

@ T-Bone: I completely understand where you are coming from. I am from here, moved off to further my education, and then moved back here to raise a family. However, if one would follow that logic and leave every time this occurs, ... More ›

James – I’m afraid you are setting yourself up for some serious disappointment. You clearly are an educated man as evidenced by your PhD. You state that you are in the corporate world and you give some good examples as to ... More ›
