The All Saints Episcopal School headmaster Dr. Mike Bennett is retiring at the end of the May. 

Bennett has been at the private school for twelve years and in the education sector for 52 years. 

The school's board of trustees deciding to name the high school academic building in his honor as the Bennett Academic Center. 

During his time at All Saints, the enrollment has increased significantly with today's all-time high of 488 students and 102 staff members.  

He has overseen two capital campaigns for building growth. Bennett said it is a team effort.

"I am very proud of how the school board, the parents, along with me and the faculty lock arms and think, 'you know what, lets take some chances. Let's plan well, let's pair well, let's work really hard, and then we will trust in God to help us to raise the money we need, to add a high school building, to add a fine arts center, to add a new gymnasium for the high school'," Bennett said.

He's highly credited for being instrumental in the development of the All Saints High School, which is now in its fifth year. It will graduate its second senior class tomorrow.
