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.

I Am... Emily Hutcherson a 2004 Graduate of Campbell County Public Schools.

I am feature Emily Hutcherson 2004 BHS Graduate
I graduated from Brookville High School in 2004 and went to James Madison University where I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Athletic Training in 2008.  After graduating from JMU I went on to Virginia Tech, where I earned a Master’s of Science in Education in 2010.  I am currently the head athletic trainer for Florida State University’s Women’s Basketball team, and am also an adjunct professor in our undergraduate athletic training education program.

While at BHS I had a wonderful Athletic Trainer (Brad Harper), who first sparked my interest in athletic training.  Through two years of course work at BHS in athletic training and working  as an athletic training student, I fell in love with the profession.
There was one pivotal experience I will always remember that solidified what I wanted to do.  In the fall of my junior year, a senior on the football team sustained a season-ending knee injury.  I was given the opportunity to help throughout his entire rehab process, and while he didn’t recover in enough time to play again, when he graduated, he thanked me and said how important I had been to his recovery. I knew then that this was a profession where I would be working with people through hard times in their lives, and I would be able to provide some assistance and relief. Having those early opportunities and experiences working with athletics in the high school setting were instrumental in my decision to pursue athletic training as a profession.

Jacob Brumfield ACS feature student 2012 Graduate

I graduated from Altavista Combined School in June of 2012 and Longwood University in May of 2016. I am currently working as a registered nurse on the Cardiac Intermediate Care Unit at Lynchburg General Hospital.  I plan to eventually go back for my graduate work. I am still split between a Nurse Practitioner degree and a Nursing Management and Leadership degree.
I was a graduate of the Early College Program at the Campbell County Technical Center. I tell people all the time that the ECP set me up for success when I continued my education at Longwood University.  Upon entering I was fully prepared for the workload that was expected of me because I had already been doing similar work through the ECP.  It also allowed for me to skip all my general education courses and go straight into my nursing classes which gave me extra time to focus on my nurse specific classes and be involved in campus organizations.   Being a part of the ECP was one of the best decisions I have ever made.

I Am feature story Jennifer Britton Feister

I graduated from William Campbell High School in 2007. In 2011, I graduated from Liberty University with a degree in Special and Elementary Education and accepted a position as an elementary teacher at Concord Elementary School. After teaching for four years, I accepted my current position as a Team Leader for World Help’s Children of the World International Children’s Choir.
 I travel with my husband, two sound technicians, and two female chaperones along with thirteen children from Honduras, the Philippines, Nepal and Uganda. Our children are all a part of World Help’s sponsorship program and our main goal is to raise awareness for the impoverished and disadvantaged children around the world who are in need of physical and spiritual support through sponsorship and rescue. Our children perform through song, dance, and spoken word as we travel for ten months across the United States sharing about the hope of Jesus Christ.  As a team leader, I am responsible for the welfare of our children as we travel. I communicate with churches and schools to plan details for our concerts and visits with host families. I direct  the children during concerts and speak about my experience as a sponsor and my trip to two of the children’s homes in Uganda.
I am mom, nurse, public speaker, administrator, and leader.

 Being a part of the drama program in high school taught me how to work as part of a team with a common goal in mind. I am a confident leader and advocate for these children and children like them around the world. I am able to clearly articulate our passion to bring “help for today and hope for tomorrow” because of the skills I learned during my five years in the Drama Club at William Campbell.

I am a 2011 graduate of Brookville High School.   Currently, I work for the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) in the accounting department in the Inventory section as an Inventory Analyst. I help maintain the Inventory Management System (IMS) statewide.  I graduated from Ferrum College in May 2015 with a Bachelors Degree in Accounting and from Liberty University in May 2016 with a Masters Degree in Accounting.  I am currently pursuing my accounting license, by taking the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam.  After gaining more experience and having my license, I would like to use my knowledge to help others.  For example, completing people's taxes for free that are not so wealthy, or using my skills at church for people that need a better understanding or guidance about their financial situations. Those are some ideas, but wherever God leads me, I will gladly follow!

One of the most challenging subjects in school for me was English.   I truly had no motivation to sit still and read an entire book, especially after basketball or track practice, games, or meets! I would rather have read Sparknotes and used that to my advantage!  Although it was challenging for me, somehow I was in the advanced English class with Mrs. Thurman.  Everyone who had her as a teacher knew that reading only Sparknotes would not contribute to a passing grade.  Mrs. Thurman was the strictest teacher I had in high school, and now I appreciate that.  Having her as a teacher made me realize that not everything in life is simply handed out; there actually has to be effort put towards what a person wants and if a person wants to be lazy and not do anything, nobody is going to make them do anything differently. With that being said, her teaching style has played a huge role in my life. I know now that I have to set goals and have a plan to achieve them. I would not have been able to graduate college and I can not pass the CPA exam by just reading information on Sparknotes!

I am a 2015 graduate of Rustburg High School.  I am currently employed at Centra Lynchburg General Hospital as an Emergency Room Stock Clerk. I stock the rooms with needed supplies such as bed pans, EKG strips, tissues, drinks, pillows, linens, etc.

I have always enjoyed helping others.  I have had several opportunities to learn skills that allow me to do just that.  First, while a student at RHS I was an office aide.   I also participated in the Culinary Arts program at the Career and Technical Center.  While there, I assisted with meal preparation and serving for special events after school.  Once I graduated from Rustburg High School, Campbell County Schools helped to initiate my enrollment in the Central Virginia Community College Transition Program.  This experience provided me access to job training, vocational exploration, and internships in the Lynchburg Area.
 In June 2017, I graduated from the Project SEARCH Program at Centra Lynchburg General Hospital.  This is a one-year vocational transition program supported by Campbell County Public Schools. 
  I love my job, and I want to thank Campbell County Public Schools for the  experiences and opportunities that prepared me to enter a work environment doing what I love each day.
