Curtis Campbell, PIO
Shoreline Public Schools
The Washington School Public Relations Association (WSPRA) presented Shoreline School District Public Information Officer Curtis Campbell with their Learning and Liberty Award at the group’s annual conference and awards banquet on April 26, 2018 in Leavenworth, WA. 

The award is the highest honor presented by WSPRA and recognizes one individual each year who has contributed greatly to the profession of school public relations through an extensive body of work, unique achievements, collaboration with colleagues and mentoring other school public relations professionals. 

“We are honored to recognize Curtis for his achievements and contributions to our field,” said WSPRA President David Beil. 
“He is a recognized and respected leader in school public relations and an outstanding resource for his colleagues across the state, which is a reflection of the passion and commitment to public education that he has consistently demonstrated.”

Shoreline Schools Superintendent Dr. Rebecca Miner nominated Campbell for the prestigious award. 

In her nomination, she wrote, “On Martin Luther King Junior Day in January, Curtis featured a quote by Dr. King on our District’s Twitter Feed which reads “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’ Curtis answers that question in a fierce yet humble manner on a daily basis in many ways.”

In support of Curtis’ nomination, David Wilson, Board President, wrote “It would be impossible to overstate the extent to which Curtis Campbell’s work in the District has strengthened our district’s relationship with our community. From our award-winning publications to our expanded social media presence, Curtis has found ways to communicate with all stakeholders in the community.”

Echoing those sentiments, Principal Bill Dunbar wrote “Curtis Campbell has transformed the way we communicate with our community in Shoreline. It’s not just about keeping the community informed of what’s going on. He’s made the difference in helping us ‘tell the story’ of student learning and achievement at the center of our work and adding to the excitement our community has for high-quality public schools.”

In his acceptance speech, Campbell dedicated the award to his father, who passed away last year, and one of his high school English teachers, both of whom inspired and supported the direction and career he would take in life.

Campbell’s nomination was also supported by statements from:
  • Maren Norton, Chair, Citizens for Shoreline Schools
  • Claire Conway, President, Rotary Club of Lake Forest Park
  • Jessica de Barros, Executive Director of Communications, Puget Sound ESD
  • Jessica Morgan, Director of Communications, Sunnyside School District
  • Brian Schultz, Assistant Superintendent, Shoreline School District
  • Tanisha Brandon-Felder, Director of Equity and Family Engagement, Shoreline School District
  • Maria Stevens, Director of Teaching and Learning, Shoreline School District
  • Don Dalziel, Director of Athletics, Shoreline Schools District
