“While listening to and learning from our community, I will develop a plan and goals for the next four years that will serve our children and educators and provide a framework to move our schools and district forward.,” Manning Campbell stated.
“I look forward to meeting with you and learning from you throughout this transitional process as we develop relationships and work toward a shared mission to support and educate our children,” she continued.
