The superintendent of a Nebraska panhandle school at the center of a kangaroo meat controversy has resigned from his position.
Potter-Dix Public Schools Superintendent Mike Williams resigned this week just weeks after students at the high school were served chili with kangaroo meat mixed in with the beef. The school board accepted Williams' resignation but neither Williams nor school district officials have not said if his resignation is due to the kangaroo meat incident.
Williams fired the school's head cook, Kevin Frei, last week.
The exotic meat had been mixed with the beef in chili served to students and in a letter to parents, Williams vowed that the meat would not be used in their schools again. He said that Frei told him he'd mixed kangaroo meat in with the chili's beef on October 10th because it is lean and nutritious.
The superintendent apologized for any worries the kangaroo meat may have caused.
