Allen Francis 2008 graduate of Campbell County  photo holding video camera.
I graduated from William Campbell in 2008. I went to Lynchburg College and in 2012 earned a B.A. in Communication Studies.  I worked as a Photojournalist at WDBJ7 and I am currently a television Producer at Roanoke Valley Television- RVTV3.  My position at RVTV3 has me shooting, editing, and writing TV Shows and content for the three municipalities that we serve- Roanoke City, Roanoke County, and the Town of Vinton( Spotlight on City Schools- which is a monthly show highlighting several timely topics in Roanoke City Public Schools each month, and  Roanoke County Business Partners- which is a monthly show showcasing various businesses in Roanoke County hosted by the Department of Economic Development). I am also working towards a Master of Fine Arts degree at Hollins University in Screenwriting and Film Studies. I hope to use this to one day to pitch a television show or feature film to a network or production company. I also plan on writing and producing short films to be presented at various film festivals.
Campbell County schools helped me by allowing me to use my passion for film for school  projects.  I was encouraged by several of my teachers at William Campbell to use my creative talent to create videos instead of traditional paper assignments. The project that most stands out in my mind is a short film I made in a group for AP US History class. With a non-existent budget and limited equipment, my group told the story of the assassination of President Lincoln. Since then, I've learned a ton about creative storytelling and was able to find a career fresh out of college that allowed me
to do that.

I Am Kallie Howard a 2015 Graduate of Campbell County Schools
I am a 2015 graduate of Brookville High School, and I attended Central Virginia Community College for a year and a semester. I haven't obtained my associates degree yet, but plan to go back in the near future to finish my degree. I am currently working for Campbell County Public Safety as a 911 Dispatcher, and have been since January 2017. I consider this job a blessing, as it has taught me a lot about myself, given me leadership opportunities, and provided me with more confidence in myself. My job keeps me on my toes; when the phone rings you never know what you're going to hear on the other end. I plan to stay at the Dispatch Center and make a career out of it, as I love serving my community and helping others. I have been volunteering with Lyn-Dan Heights Volunteer Fire Department for about 2 years now, and serve my community that way as much as possible.

While in high school, my horticulture class was the most influential to me. This class gave me so many opportunities. The teacher, Ms. Hansotte, was one of my favorites and still to this day I look up to her. While taking horticulture in high school, I was also involved in FFA and had the chance to serve as president. By having the chance to serve as president of FFA it gave me confidence in myself. It helped me get out of my comfort zone, and helped me develop better leadership abilities.

I Am... Katie Hines a 2013 Graduate of Campbell County Public Schools

Katie Hines 2013 AHS Graduate
I graduated from AHS in 2013 and then went on to graduate from Virginia Commonwealth University in May 2017 with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science with a concentration in international relations and a double minor in religious studies and Spanish. I also graduated with a certificate in Global Education, a certificate of Peace Corps Prep, and Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate.  While at VCU I attended Universidad Andres Bello in Santiago, Chile spring semester 2016. I am currently working as a Global Assistant for VCU Globe. I coordinate with 13 community partners, VCU faculty and students to facilitate student completion of service-learning hours required to complete the VCU Globe program.  I coordinate transportation needs for those students and community partners. I also work as a van driver providing transportation for international students on various trips throughout Richmond and Virginia. I will be leaving for the Peace Corps on March 5th, 2018 and will be  working as a Community Economic Development volunteer in Paraguay for 27 months.  After the Peace Corps, I have considered applying for the Fulbright Fellowship to be an English Teacher’s Assistant in a foreign country. I also plan to pursue a master's program or law program for international human rights.
While in High School my Spanish classes were most influential. I loved learning about different cultures, and I have developed a love for learning languages. We weren't just learning the language, we were developing cultural awareness and cross-cultural communication. This also led me to attend the Japanese Governor's School for three weeks between my Junior and Senior years. This was an intensive program where we were immersed in the language, culture, and traditions of Japan. These experiences all helped me figure out that I wanted to see more of the world, meet people from other cultures, and learn languages. These experiences helped me learn the value of going out of my comfort zone in order to develop open-mindedness and empathy for other cultures which led me to my current path.

Alexis Witcher I Am feature
I am a graduate of William Campbell High class of 2015. I graduated from Ferrum College in May 2017 with a Bachelors of Social Work. I am currently employed as a Case Manager with Horizon Behavioral Health in Lynchburg, VA. As a Mental Health Case Manager, I link mental health patients to beneficial services in their community, provide supportive counseling, and monitor their progress every step of the way!   Next year I plan to  pursue my Masters of Social Work with an emphasis in Education through VCU.

The Campbell County Early College program definitely prepared me for college! With two years already completed because of the program, I was able to dive right into my major and graduate within two short years. Early College taught me how to manage my time and remain focused in my studies. The professors were firm, yet encouraging! I am so grateful for the blessing and opportunity to be a graduate of the Early College Program!

I AM.... Amy Hale a 2002 Graduate of Campbell County Public Schools

Amy Hale Principal Rustburg High School

I graduated from Rustburg High School in 2002, and completed the five-year BA/MT program at the University of Virginia.  I taught high school history for six years at Monticello High School while working on my administrative degree at UVA.  I returned to Rustburg in 2013 as an assistant principal and am currently the principal at RHS.  I am also working on my doctorate at Lynchburg College.  As principal, I am responsible for the entire school ranging from athletics and extracurricular activities to the instructional program and personnel.  I truly enjoy working with students, parents, teachers, faculty, and other community members.  As a Rustburg graduate, I have great pride not only in Rustburg High School, but all of Campbell County Schools.  In the future, I hope to continue to have opportunities to work in public education and with young people.

Campbell County Schools helped lay the foundation for my career and my passion for public education.  Throughout elementary, middle, and high school, all of my teachers, principals, and counselors provided the support needed for me to be successful.  In high school, my AP US History teacher inspired me to become a teacher and sparked my love for history.  The rigor of AP and other advanced classes prepared me for my challenging coursework at UVA and for the field of public education.  If those courses had not been available to me as a Campbell County student, I would not be where I am today.  Furthermore, it is an honor to be able to work in the same community that raised me and to be able to give back to that community.  I very much appreciate all of the opportunities I have had with Campbell County Schools.
