I Am... Emma Green a 2013 Graduate of Campbell County Public Schools.

Emma Green CCPS Graduate

I graduated from Altavista Combined School and Central Virginia Governors School in 2013.  I attended American University (Washington, DC) where I earned my degree in Public Relations & Strategic Communications with a Minor in Marketing. I  am currently the Public Relations Coordinator at LimeBike, a bike share company based in San Francisco. My goal for the future is to continue playing a role in the progressive sustainability, health, and transportation industries. 
I began to develop my love for communications in my high school journalism class. Through the ACS Nuntius yearbook, I had the opportunity to lead and think creatively as part of a motivated editorial team, and to attend annual conferences at Columbia University in NYC to learn from professionals and to interact with other aspiring journalists across the country.  Most importantly, CVGS prepared me academically for my classes at AU. Because of the research and critical thinking skills, I gained at CVGS, along with the incredible opportunities I had in my classes there, I excelled in my classes in college.  This allowed me to pursue internships that led me to my job today. When I was younger, I thought I wanted a career in medicine; it was at CVGS that I realized I didn't want to pursue science itself, but to tell the story of the work of the scientists around me.  At LimeBike, I get to merge my passions for public relations, technology, sustainability, and health. It's ideal, and I credit my CVGS and ACS teachers who challenged me and cultivated class-wide exploration, innovation, and change.

I AM... Tyler Jennings a 2015 Graduate of Campbell County Public Schools

Tyler Jennings 2015 Graduate of CCPS
I graduated from William Campbell High School in 2015.  When I entered my junior year of high school, I realized that I wanted to start working towards a trade so I enrolled in the electrical program offered at Campbell County Technical Center. After the first semester at the CCTC, I realized I had found my trade. The courses offered there allowed me to get certified in safety training as well as earn my CPR card. During my senior year, I continued in the electrical program at the Campbell County Technical Center. After graduating from William Campbell High School, I had to choose where I was going with what I had learned at the CCTC. In August of 2015, I accepted a job with Moore's Electric and began working toward my apprenticeship as an electrician. While working full-time at Moore’s Electric, I attended night classes at the Virginia Technical Institute in Altavista. Because of the courses I had been able to take while still in high school, I was able to start ahead of my fellow classmates at VTI. I graduated from Virginia Technical Institute with my certification as an electrician in less than 18 months.
The Campbell County Technical Center gave me the best opportunity to find a trade that I would enjoy. By attending classes at the vocational center during my junior and senior years of high school, I was able to gain experiences in the electrical field and get classes under my belt to get a head start on a career. Currently, I am a full-time employee at Moore's Electric.

CCPS Response to National School Walkout

posted Mar 10, 2018, 7:15 AM by Amy Abell   [ updated Mar 10, 2018, 7:15 AM ]

Campbell County Schools respects every individual’s right to free expression and peaceful assembly.  On March 14, 2018, national organizations have advocated for a student walkout at 10:00 a.m.  Campbell County Schools neither encourages nor discourages participation in this event.  Campbell County students, if they choose, may participate in a peaceful manner. 

 

Campbell County Schools’ number one priority will be student safety.  At 10:00 a.m. on March 14, 2018, students wishing to participate will be allowed to assemble for seventeen minutes under the supervision of school staff in a safe location that the administration will announce the morning of the event.  For safety purposes, only students will be allowed to participate in this event.  Students wishing not to participate will remain in class under the supervision of their classroom teacher.  At the conclusion of seventeen minutes, students will be expected to return to class and resume normal school activities.  Throughout the entirety of the event, students are expected to adhere to Campbell County Schools’ Standards of Student Conduct.

I Am Erin Flynn with video camera



I graduated from Rustburg High School and Central Virginia Community College (through Campbell County’s Early College Program) in 2012.  I attended James Madison University, where I received a bachelor’s degree in Writing, Rhetoric and Technical Communications (WRTC) and School of Media Arts and Design (SMAD). My concentration in SMAD was Journalism. I graduated from JMU in December 2015. After graduating from James Madison University in December 2015, I served as an education reporter for Harrisonburg’s newspaper, the Daily News-Record.  Currently, I am an editor and communication specialist for B&W Associates in Woodbridge, Virginia. I began working at B&W Associates about a year ago. As an editor, I am responsible for running What’s Up Prince William, an online news site that covers non-profits, businesses, events and community issues in Prince William County. In addition to writing stories, I film and edit videos and implement Search Engine Optimization (SEO) strategies. Search Engine Optimization focuses on how websites rank on search engines (such as Google and Bing). I am interested in becoming a managing partner for B&W Associates. As the managing partner, I would like to serve as the Director of Marketing and Search Engine Optimization.


Through my classes in the Early College Program and Campbell County Schools, I gained several skills that I use daily. My love for writing, editing, research, and communication was fostered by the English and literature classes I took at Rustburg Middle School, Rustburg High School and in the Early College Program. One of my favorite memories is from English class during my freshman year at Rustburg High School. My teacher, Mrs. Slate, often asked us to analyze and talk about various pieces of literature. Through these class discussions and through my conversations with teachers, I was encouraged to delve deeper into the various subjects we were studying at the time. These experiences have prepared me for my current position, where I often gain new understanding and help create solutions by simply looking beyond the surface.
