BAY CITY – Bay Area Catholic Schools Administrator Michael J. Knoff on Thursday named Brian Campbell as interim-principal for All Saints Central High School for the remainder of the 2008-2009 school year.
Campbell succeeds J. B. Watters, who resigned his position November 30 to become principal at St. Michael the Archangel High School in Fredericksburg, Va.
"It is a pleasure to be able to appoint Brian Campbell as interim principal at All Saints," Knoff said. "Brian exemplifies the qualities that we seek in a Catholic leader. Being a product of our schools has helped him to develop a great understanding of our charge to educate students in a Catholic faith based environment. His strong commitment to quality education will help All Saints to continue on its path of being the best. I look forward to working closely with him.”
Campbell is an All Saints alumnus, a 2003 graduate of the Univeristy of Michigan and a 2005 graduate of Saginaw Valley State University. Since 2005, he has served as a social studies teacher at All Saints, teaching such courses as U. S. history, global studies, world history, current events, government, and economics.
In addition to his classroom work, Campbell chaperoned and managed a All Saints student volunteers who spent their 2006 Christmas break in New Orleans, laboring for Hurricane Katrina recovery, and has been assistant varsity baseball coach for since 2004.
"Brian Campbell will provide strong leadership for All Saints,” said the Most Rev. Robert J. Carlson, Bishop of Saginaw. “His commitment to the mission of Catholic schools is outstanding. Brian’s stepping forward at this time of transition will provide the school with great stability as it moves forward in its quest to become an exceptional Catholic school.”
