It is with a deep sense of sadness that we prepare for the departure of Will Campbell as principal of Fair Street International Academy. Even though we are excited for him as he and his family prepare for the new opportunities that await them in Minnesota, they will be truly missed. 

Mr. Campbell has served this community with such humility, compassion and with an overwhelming love for all the students under his care. He has not only been an asset to the Gainesville City school system but a treasured gift to this community. 

We truly regret having to lose him as a highly skilled and experienced administrator to another school district. He will long be remembered in the annals of our history as an exceptional educator. 

The endearing investment that he has made in the lives of so many children will remain highly regarded memories of the contributions he has made here. As he prepares to depart, we pray that he will leave knowing that his life and legacy will never be forgotten.
