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.
