XENIA, Ohio (WDTN) – The Xenia High School is getting a new principal this fall.

David Torrence, former Greenville High School assistant principal for 13 years, will begin a two-year contract with Xenia High School on Aug. 1, replacing Dr. Hank Jackoby, who resigned in March after serving as principal for three years, our business partners at the Xenia Daily Gazette reported.
