BAY CITY — Diocesan Superintendent of Catholic Schools Mary Ann Deschaine today announced that Brian Campbell will serve as the new principal at All Saints Central Middle & High School in Bay City. He will begin his duties on August 1.
“A second-generation alumnus, Brian is invested in All Saints Central and embraces the Catholic school community where he received his own education,” Deschaine said. “He has a vision for All Saints Central that aspires to motivate, challenge and expand the individual potential of each student while helping them to grow in their Catholic faith.”
Since 2009, Campbell has served as assistant principal at All Saints Central, where he has been a social studies teacher for the last seven years. He also coached varsity baseball at the school for a number of years. Campbell graduated from the University of Michigan with a Bachelor of Arts in economics. He completed the teacher certification program at Saginaw Valley State University in 2005 and is currently working on a master’s degree in educational leadership.
“All Saints Central is a remarkable school with a rich tradition of faith, academics, and service,” Campbell said. “I have been very fortunate to be part of this school community for most of my life. I am honored and excited to have been selected to lead All Saints Central into the future.”
The search for a principal at All Saints Central began last month when it was announced that its current principal John Hoving would serve as the new principal at Nouvel Catholic Central High School in Saginaw.
“I believe there is a unique opportunity for collaboration between All Saints Central and Nouvel Catholic Central because of the great working-relationship that Brian and John have shared over the years,” Deschaine said. “They have already talked about ways in which the two schools can partner in unique learning opportunities and faith-filled missions, while respecting the individual identity of each school.”
Campbell is a resident of Essexville where he is a life-long member of St. John the Evangelist Parish. He and his wife have one son.
Bay Area Catholic Schools, which includes three elementary schools and All Saints Central Middle & High School, is home to more than 600 students. School leaders, teachers and staff are committed to excellence in faith formation, academics, athletics, the arts and community service.
