Although Mr. Campbell loves his career, he didn’t always intend to pursue writing. He graduated from East Nashville High School in 1943 and immediately enlisted in the Army Aviation Cadet Program. One of his fellow officers mentioned an interest in journalism, and the idea resonated with him. When the war ended and Mr. Campbell left the service, he decided to pursue journalism at the University of Tennessee. He proceeded to earn a Bachelor of Science from the school in 1949. Mr. Campbell then enhanced his academic standing by becoming a certified association executive through ASAE in 1975.
In recognition of his efforts, Mr. Campbell was honored with a Silver Falchion Award in 2009 and a Bloody Dagger Award in 2003. His achievements were highlighted in numerous editions of Who’s Who in America and one of Who’s Who in the World.
