Williamsburg Christian Academy recently announced the appointment of new administrators.

Dr. David Breslin will join the team as the new head of school this summer after an extensive search process that began last year.

Breslin will take over the position from Larry Vaught, who has served as the interim head of school since Gwen Martin retired last June.

Breslin received his bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Ohio Wesleyan University and his master’s in education from Harvard University. He completed his Ph.D. at the University of Georgia last year.

During his 23-year career in Christian education, Breslin has worked at numerous schools throughout both Virginia and Georgia. He began his career as a middle school teacher, coach and athletic director at Chesapeake Academy in Irvington, Virginia, before moving to Covenant Christian School in Charlottesville, where he taught and coached for 12 years.

A lifelong coach of many different sports, Breslin is a five-time Virginia State Champion winning coach, and three-time Virginia State Coach of the Year award recipient.

Breslin is currently the middle school principal at North Cobb Christian School in Kennesaw, Georgia, and he will complete the current school year there before relocating to Williamsburg in June.

Robert Campbell has been appointed to the position of head of administration at Williamsburg Christian Academy effective March 1.

The newly created head of administration position will oversee all business and support operations of the school, including finance, accounting, human resources, facilities, development, marketing and admissions.

Campbell began his career in 1976 at Newport News Shipbuilding, where he graduated and later taught at the Apprentice School. He then started and operated his own business, R. J. Campbell Builder, for 12 years as a successful custom home builder in Williamsburg.

The call to ministry then brought Campbell to Williamsburg Community Chapel, where he spent nearly 19 years as the executive of administration.

In addition to Breslin and Campbell, Williamsburg Christian Academy recently announced that current Director of Educational Enrichment Beth Fletcher has accepted the position of Head of Upper School. She will also retain her current position.

Fletcher received a bachelor of arts in psychology from American University and a master of social work from Gallaudet University. She has worked at Williamsburg Christian Academy for the past 12 years as a teacher, head of middle school and director of educational enrichment.

Williamsburg Christian Academy is excited to welcome all three appointees to their new positions and looking forward to the contributions they have to offer the school.
