Addison Davis named next Hillsborough County superintendent

Hillsborough County

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – The Hillsborough County School Board selected Addison Davis as the district’s next superintendent on Tuesday.

Addison comes from Clay County where he currently serves as the superintendent of the school district. He will replace current Hillsborough County Superintendent Jeff Eakins when he retires in June after 31 years with the district.

“Mr. Davis is a career educator – beginning first as a classroom teacher – who has spent more than 20 years educating and supporting students in Florida,” the district said in a statement. “He has served as Superintendent in Clay County, Florida since 2016. Within his first year, he was named a 2017-2018 Superintendent to Watch by the National School Public Relations Association. This past year, he was a finalist for Florida’s Superintendent of the Year.”

The school board says it voted unanimously to approve Davis as the next superintendent after a seven-month nationwide search. Davis was chosen over the two other finalists: Dr. Peter Licata and Dr. Don Haddad.
