Office of Communications
Tampa, Fla. – (July 10, 2017) – Pending approval from the Hillsborough County School Board, Superintendent Jeff Eakins has named veteran journalist and communications professional Grayson Kamm as the Communications and Media Officer for Hillsborough Schools.
In this role, Kamm is set to lead a team of professionals to improve the connection between the community and the district using a wide range of communication channels.
Since January 2016, Kamm has served as the Communications Director at Tampa’s Museum of Science & Industry. As a member of MOSI’s executive team, Kamm has managed complex projects and communications efforts; generated substantial positive media coverage for the institution; and worked to restructure the organization into a new, financially sustainable business model.
Before joining MOSI, Kamm covered a broad range of topics for 14 years as an award-winning journalist – including extensive investigations, breaking news, feature stories and more - on television, in newspapers and online. Kamm serves on advisory boards for both The Junior League of Tampa and Innovation Place (formerly the Tampa Innovation Alliance) and volunteers with several community organizations.
Kamm is a graduate of the University of Florida and is married to attorney and child advocate Cathy Kamm. The oldest of their two children will begin kindergarten in Hillsborough Schools this fall.
