Dr. Hungate leads the Early College High School program at La Vega High School. She is the Dean of Advanced Academics for the district. Before coming to La Vega she was superintendent at Hallsburg ISD and assistant superintendent at West I.S.D. During her many years in central office, she had forgotten how much she loved being on a campus with high school students, so when this job opened, she realized this is what she had been looking for and she applied. She is now proud to be  La Vega Pirate. The biggest thing Dr. Hungate likes about La Vega is the students and staff because we are great kids and “so sweet” to her, and we know how to work together.

Dr. Hungate was born in Lubbock, Texas, and grew up in a little town in Alpine, Texas. She has a daughter with two children and a son that is a graduate of Tarleton. She and her husband also own a ranch on the Brazos River where they raise sheep and hay. She loves Broadway musicals, especially the one called “Wicked.”  When she was in high school she participated in many activities including being yearbook editor and in one-act play. Her surprising fact is that in junior high, she was also a great skateboarder! One of her biggest pet peeves is when someone tells her “That’s not my job” for something as simple as picking up a piece of trash in the hall because she believes we should all work together to make our school a great place to attend!
