  • Paul Campbell is 100% deserving of this prestigious award. He is a dedicated educator who cares deeply for his students and his community. He possesses a clear understanding of what it takes to engage his students in learning and I know they receive a quality education in a fun, meaningful and safe environment. CONGRATULATIONS, PAUL!!
