The Florida High School Athletic Association’s (FHSAA) Board of Directors has approved George Tomyn as its next executive director.
A contract is expected to be presented to the Board on May 1.
From 2012-2016, Tomyn served as the Superintendent of Marion County Schools. The Ocala resident previously spent seven years as the executive director of School Development and Evaluation for the Marion County School District.
In all, Tomyn has 36 years of administrative experience in the Marion County Public School system; he holds a master’s degree in educational leadership from the University of Florida.
“Mr. Tomyn’s energy and passion shined through, and we are elated about this selection,” FHSAA President Mark Marsala said, in a statement. “It was a tight decision, but the right decision was made.”
Tomyn was selected over Louisiana High School Athletic Association Executive Director Eddie Bonine and Indian River Public Schools Educational Consultant Dr. Peggy Jones, who also interviewed for the position.
After an agreement is reached, Tomyn will replace current FHSAA Executive Director Dr. Roger Dearing, who is retiring after nearly nine years.
“As a former student-athlete, coach and principal within the FHSAA, I am thrilled to take on this new challenge,” Tomyn said. “I am humbled to be part of the FHSAA’s rich history, and look forward to working with the FHSAA’s Board and staff to ensure a smooth transition into this exciting new role.”
