On Aug. 20, Andrew Campbell of Newbern was named an Outstanding Alumnus of Dyersburg State Community College. The presentation was made to the more than 275 members of the DSCC faculty and staff assembled in the Student Center on the Dyersburg campus for the annual Fall Update.
Campbell is the new principal of Halls Elementary School. He graduated from Dyersburg State in 1996 with his Associate of Science in elementary education. While a student at Dyersburg State, he was a member of Phi Theta Kappa, and participated in activities and mission trips through the Baptist Student Union, now the BCM.
He continued his education at the University of Tennessee at Martin where he earned his Bachelor of Science with a major in elementary education in 1998 and Master of Science with a major in administration and supervision in 2006.
Campbell has worked at Halls Elementary School since 1999. He taught grades four through six until 2006 when he was named assistant principal. In 2005, he was named the Halls Elementary School Teacher of the Year, and in 2012 he assumed the duties of principal.
“I enjoyed being able to attend a smaller campus close to home.  I was able to transition from high school to college as I adjusted to the extra freedom of being a young adult.  Classes were not too large to be lost in the crowd.  Teachers knew the students by name.  The cost of my education at DSCC was affordable.  I also enjoyed being able to participate in the activities offered through BSU on campus,” Campbell wrote.
DSCC presents Outstanding Alumni Awards four times each year.
The awards are based on personal and professional achievements. To nominate someone for the award, contact Constance Clay in the Office of Institutional Advancement at (731) 286-3349.
