DAR honors Campbell for career teaching English
Earlier this month retiring communication arts teacher Kay Campbell of Poplar Bluff High School received statewide recognition from the Missouri State Society Daughters of the Revolution for a career promoting literacy in Southeast Missouri.
The certificate of recognition, signed by DAR State Literacy Promotion Chairwoman Janean Faux, was awarded to the longtime educator for “developing curriculum, ensuring library access and designing programs of study to encourage high school students in their progression of literacy skills.”
This year’s Senior High and secondary grade level R-I Teacher of the Year, Campbell began her tenure at Perry County District 32, teaching eighth grade language arts and reading for a year. She taught language arts to freshmen and sophomores at Greenville High School for the next four years. Campbell spent the next two decades at Lone Oak High School in Paducah, teaching language arts and journalism to seniors before completing her career in instruction at Poplar Bluff Schools, teaching language arts and Bible as literature for the past five years.
