Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) executive director George Tomyn has announced that he plans to retire following the 2021-2022 school year.
Tomyn has spent the past four years in the top leadership role for the FHSAA, which is headquartered in Gainesville and serves as the official governing body for interscholastic athletics in Florida.
Before that, he worked for the Marion County school system for 26 years, including a stint as school superintendent from 2012 to 2016.
Serving as the organization’s chief executive officer, Tomyn is tasked with supervision of FHSAA staff and office; interpretation of bylaws, guidelines, regulations, policies and procedures; and corporate sponsorships, among other duties.
“Serving as executive director of the FHSAA has been an enjoyable and rewarding experience,” Tomyn said, in a release. “I look forward to continuing the role for the 2021-22 school year.”
Moving forward, the FHSAA’s board of directors will outline a timeline for choosing Tomyn’s replacement and make that hiring decision, following the succession process.
The FHSAA supervises and regulates interscholastic athletic programs for high school students at member public, private and charter schools.
The organization also recognizes and honors academic achievement among student-athletes at almost 800 middle, junior and senior high schools statewide.
