Perry County Schools is under new leadership. Kent Campbell, who grew up and attended school in the community, started serving as the district’s new superintendent at the beginning of the year.
Prior to beginning his role at the district’s helm, Campbell served the students of Perry County as a coach, teacher, and school administrator. He most recently was principal at West Perry Elementary.
“I’ve been in a lot of schools,” he said. “I know the people of this county.”
As a first-year superintendent, he said he is relying on the district’s “family atmosphere” to achieve his goals of leading a high-performing school district.
