Floresville ISD to Lose a Great Leader in Dr. David Vinson, Floresville ISD Superintendent.
For the past 6 year Dr. David Vinson has lead the Floresville Independent School District as Superintendent. Dr. Vinson will be resigning at the conclusion of this school year to start a new adventure with the Wylie Independent School District, as reported in the Wylie News on March 26.
Under Dr. Vinson, Floresville began the Building a Community of Character program. During his time as Superintendent Floresville voters passed a $63 million bond package that allowed the district funds to build Floresville North Elementary which open to students this school year. This bond funded the construction of the new Floresville High School which opened to students in 2009-2010 school year, and upgrades to the Floresville High School Football Stadium as well as the construction of a state of the art High School Athletic Complex. This bond also brought new opportunity to our students in conjunction with Alamo Community Colleges by opening the early college within the newly built high school.
In a recent article in the Wilson County News, Dr. Vinson is quoted saying,"I have absolutely loved my time in Floresville and will miss everyone in the community very much." Adding,"I would only leave this place for another school district that has a great staff, school board, kids, and a strong sense of community. Wylie is that place."
On a personal note, I have always admired Dr. Vinson. Having had the opportunity to speak with him on occasions, and I have always been impressed with how much he valued community input. Dr. Vinson and his Beautiful family will truly be missed by myself and this community. Floresville owes you a big thank-you for a job well done Dr. Vinson. THANK-YOU!
