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.
