Dr. Diana Greene says Eddie Hundley’s recommendations were “false and inaccurate”


MANATEE COUNTY – Manatee County Superintendent Dr. Diana Greene said Eddie Hundley made “false and inaccurate” statements when he helped secure a new teaching job for Quentin Peterson.

In a letter of reprimand dated May 2nd, Dr. Greene made it clear when Peterson resigned from Manatee County he agreed to never seek reemployment within the district again.

The letter also states that Hundley knew of the sexual misconduct investigation into Peterson, yet he still recommended him for a job with Sarasota County, on two separate occasions.

The investigation against Peterson came to a head on April 24th, when police arrested him on charges of unlawful sexual act with a minor and possession of child pornography.

Peterson is currently free on a $50,000 bond.
