Faircloth grew up in Abilene and attended Howard Payne University. He spent 9 years on the Brownwood ISD Board of Trustees.
During Faircloth's time at BISD he helped with renovations of the school, BHS received six gold performance awards in different academic areas, and had a 94% graduation rate. BHS was also one of the 26 nationally recognized Blue Ribbon schools in the nation.
All the faculty and students will miss him dearly. Faircloth says the students were always his top priority and what he will miss the most once he's gone. Faircloth is looking forward to spending more time with his grandchildren and wife.
Come Monday night, February 10, the school board plans to announce the new principal.
