“It’s hard sometimes to look forward to a job, no one really loves a job all the time. However, it’s the people who make you look forward to each day and what you do,” Campbell said.

“Congratulations Mr. Campbell and we are so excited to welcome you to Tigerland! Mr. Campbell will undergo a 30-day waiting period, as is customary for all new superintendent hires, and then begin work on June 3, 2024,” Tenaha ISD said.
