Lubbock ISD Assistant Athletic Director announces retirement

From Lubbock Independent School District:

Lubbock ISD Assistant Athletic Director Melynn Hunt has announced her retirement after 39 years in public education, 19 of them in Lubbock ISD. She was a teacher and coach in several West Texas communities, leading four girls' basketball teams to the state tournament. In 2009, she was inducted into the Texas Girls Coaches Association (TGCA) Hall of Honor. Hunt was named a district "Coach of the Year" seven times, as well as being named coach of the year by newspapers in Ft. Worth, Abilene and Lubbock.

Lubbock ISD Superintendent Karen Garza, Ph.D., said, "Melynn Hunt is an exceptional educational leader and a person of tremendous character and integrity.  She has touched thousands of LISD student athletes with her tireless work and dedication.  She will be greatly missed in LISD, but her positive impact will be felt for many years to come."

Highly respected among her peers in the coaching world, Hunt joined the Lubbock ISD Athletic Department in 2001 and also served as interim athletic director. She previously coached at Monterey High School and Smylie Wilson Middle School. In addition, Hunt coached in Plainview, Hale Center, Jacksboro, Haskell and Lubbock Cooper.

Mark Ball, Lubbock ISD Athletic Director said, "Melynn Hunt is the ultimate professional. She has dedicated almost 40 years of her life to the young people of West Texas. Melynn has played a vital role in the growth and equality of women's athletics, and in the improvement of high school athletics."

Hunt will be honored with a special recognition during the Lubbock ISD Hall of Honor Induction Banquet on Saturday, June 15 in the McKenzie-Merket Alumni Center on the campus of Texas Tech University.
