FARMINGTON — Steve Davis was named as the new principal at Syracuse High School effective January 3, replacing current principal Craig Hansen.
Davis is currently principal at Fairfield Junior High School. In introducing him to the board, Superintendent Bryan Bowles said running a high school is a big enterprise, a “full day and full night-time job.” He said Davis has a tremendous reputation and he is highly regarded by his colleagues.
Hansen will retire from the school district to take on a church assignment directing the Missionary Training Center in Mexico.
