Williston's new superintendent settling in to new role

By  | 

Williston, N.D. - Over the last few weeks, new Williston District One Superintendent Michael Campbell has been adjusting to life in his new job.

The Missouri native spent the last 13 years as the superintendent of the class B Sergeant-Central school district in the eastern part of the state. As Superintendent, Campbell is hoping to help oversee a stabilization in enrollment, and make sure that the district's finances are in order.

While he doesn't necessarily think that there will be major differences between the class B and class A levels, there is one thing that has struck him about his new job so far.

"When I started putting in a lot of the activities in my calendar, I just went 'holy smokes, we are a busy school district in activities.' And that's the other part of education. It's a good part. And we encourage students to go out and do things," says Campbell.

Campbell will have his hands full in his first year as superintendent. The district is opening not one, but two new schools in the fall.
