Tom Davis will serve as interim principal of Roanoke Rapids High School for the remainder of this school year. He is currently the school system’s executive director of student, family, and staff services.
The board of trustees approved his appointment Tuesday night.
Current principal Jeff White announced his plans earlier this month to leave the district for a position in Nash County.
Davis, who has served as a district level administrator since 2014, has extensive administrative experience serving as RRHS assistant principal from 2002-2009 and principal at Chaloner Middle School from 2009-2014.
“Mr. Davis is fully committed to the success of Roanoke Rapids High School and our district and we commend him for his willingness to serve in this important role,” said Interim Superintendent Julie Thompson.
Prior to entering the education field, Davis served in the United States Marine Corps.
