The Campbell County School District will join other school districts in saluting our local education leaders during Tennessee’s annual School Board Appreciation Week from January 20-26, 2019.


The week is designed to recognize the contributions made by all school board members, including Campbell County School Board.  School Boards are given tremendous responsibility of ensuring the education of Tennessee’s youth.

School board members are elected by their communities to support and contribute to their local schools.  They oversee multi-million-dollar budgets, which fund education programs for more than 975,222 students in approximately 1,822 schools in Tennessee.  Their personal decisions affect more than 79,000 teachers, administrators, and support staff.

These leaders are responsible for formulating school district policy, maintaining school facilities, and adhering to state and federal education laws.  Legal concerns and the complexities of school finance require them to spend many hours in board training programs and personal study to enhance their understanding of these issues.

My deepest appreciation is extended to the dedicated men and women who make it possible for local citizens to participate in education.  I salute the public servants of the Campbell County School Board whose commitment and civic responsibility make local control of public schools in our community possible:

Lisa Fields – District 1

Jeffrey Miller – District 1

Josh James – District 2

Brent Lester – District 2

Johnny Byrge – District 3

Faye Heatherly – District 3

Ronnie Lasley – District 4

Noah Smith – District 4

Crystal Creekmore – District 5

Steve Morgan – District 5

Please join me in saying thank you to our school board members during Tennessee’s School Board Appreciation Week!

Jennifer Fields

Director of Schools

  1. Thank you Director Fields for your kind and encouraging words. I consider serving on the school board a great privilege. With that privilege comes a great responsibility to be prepared thru training and staying updated with the latest educational opportunities for improving our educational system. This is my 15th year to serve and I can honestly say, I have never lost my constant desire to be a better board member each year. Every student deserves our very best.
