Art Davis has had the longest tenure of any principal at Paducah Tilghman High School, administering the school since 2003. His professional career in education dates to 1985, having also taught at Metropolis, Illinois, and Henry County, Tennessee.

On June 30, Davis will retire from a Paducah Tilghman career that has included service as the band director, activities director and principal. He has been at PTHS since 1992.

When Davis accepted the position of principal, he knew that if he stayed in that position to his retirement age, he would be in the chair for a long time. 
 
"When I first came in here, I almost did not take the job or apply for it because I knew the length of time I would have to stay here until I could retire, which would have made me the longest(-serving) principal," he said. "I just took it a year at a time."
