School History

  • Jennings Middle School was named after Mr. Jinks Jennings. He was born in Brooksville, Florida and moved to Thonotosassa in the early 1920's. Mr. Jennings made an agreement with the school district, that if they were to put a school on his parcel of land, they could use the land free of charge. The original school started in a church. Mr. Jennings was a strong advocate of education and an civic activist for the residents in Thonotosassa and Seffner, Florida. He died in the 1950's. The school was downgraded to an elementary school and the doors eventually closed in 1965. In 2003 the school re-opened off Williams Road in Seffner, Florida, where now the school resides on Governor's Run Drive.
