Floresville to Welcome a Brand New Superintendent to Floresville ISD. New Superintendent Choice.
As the new school year swiftly approaches and we prepare to send our most precious assets back to school, a lot of us are wondering who will be filling the void left by Dr. David Vinson's resignation. Who would the Floresville ISD Board of Directors choose to fill the position of Superintendent?
Well today I had the opportunity to meet the lone finalist for the job.....Dr. Jerry Lee Hunkapiller. Under Texas law the trustees of a district must wait at least 21 days from the time the lone finalistis named to sign a contract. Dr. Hunkapiller was officially named the lone finalist on July 7th. He is excited to fill the position left vacant byDr. Vinson's move to Wylie ISD in June.
Having metDr. Hunkapiller, I am excited for the future ofFloresville ISD. He is a polite, soft spoken man with a clear vision and sense of community. He has assured me that he will have an open door policy and wants community input. He will be bringing with him to his new position, the experience he gained in his time as Superintendent of Millsap ISD. Prior to becoming Superintendent at Millsap, Dr. Hunkapiller was the Director of Student Services at Garland ISD servicing 56,000 students.
Dr. Hunkapiller completed his Bachelor Degree at Texas Tech, his Masters Degree at Sul Ross State, and his PHD at Texas A&M Commerce. His education and experiences will be an asset in his new position here at Floresville ISD.
Floresville would like to welcomeDr. Hunkapiller, wife Wendy, and his five boys(Blade 11, Gage 9, Bryce 5, Grayson 3, and Briggs 18 months) to our community. Thank-you for stepping up to the challenge, we look forward to having you!
