The President of the Governor’s School for Science and Mathematics in Hartsville has announced he plans to resign at the end of the school year.

The announcement was made via an email to the board of trustees, wherein school president Hector Flores said he couldn’t keep working at the school due to “a relentless flow of personal and professional attacks.”

The email goes on to say: “These attacks, both anonymous and in public, have indicated a level of hostility and animosity that I have never experienced before in my professional life.”

Flores’ announcement comes after a vote of no confidence was made against him on June 3, with faculty voting 21 to 3 that they had no confidence in Flores’ ability to lead.

A similar vote of no confidence against the president of the Governor’s School for the Arts was held last spring.
