Situated at the base of the Hill Country, Uvalde is considered the "best kept secret in the West." It is the honey capital of the world, which means our Southern charm comes naturally. Also known as the "tree city," it is one of the few places you will find hundred- year-old-trees growing in the middle of the roads. Spectacular spring flowers and amazing autumn colors are the backdrop to outdoor adventures. We host tourists year-round with a variety of summer activities and hunting for dove, deer, and turkey in the fall. A short commute to San Antonio yields world-class shopping and dining. After a day of urban adventure, return home to rural Texas where running home for lunch every day and raising a family in a small town atmosphere is completely feasible.

  • Paid Time Off and Extended Sick Leave
  • Retirement Plans including matching 403(b) and 457(b) plans
