A long and trusted friend of the high school community, Dr. Dearing started his tenure with the FHSAA in June 2008. Dr. Dearing previously served many roles on the high school level, amassing a great deal of knowledge from the first-hands lens of a being a teacher, high school coach and AD. He also served as both principal and superintendent.
