Roxanne Campbell, MS – Management, BS – Business Administration
28 years of service (July 1987)

As a former Head Start parent, I came up through the ranks – bookkeeper, accountant, assistant director, director. I love working with the parents on the policy council, training them on the program and sharing decision making. I believe we can truly make a difference in the lives of the children and families we serve. I work to ensure we are not only in compliance with the rules and regulations, but that we are providing high quality services to the children and families and are having positive outcomes.
