BROOKLYN CENTER, MN - The Minnesota State High School League announced today that Charlie Campbell, a prominent Minnesota high school educator, and administrator, will become the 14th Associate Director in the League's 105-year history.

On August 2, Campbell, 48, will begin his duty with the League that has served more than 500 member schools since 1916 as a non-profit volunteer organization that promotes service, leadership, and extra-curricular activities.

Campbell graduated from Brooklyn Center High School in 1991 and Hamline University in 1995. He was also a member of the Pipers' football team and subsequently served as an assistant coach. Campbell has worked on the Minnesota Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association and was a member of the InSideOut Coaching initiative's teaching staff.

Erich Martens, executive director of the Minnesota State High School League, said, "Charlie's expertise and outstanding track record of leadership, development of programs and initiatives, and advocacy on behalf of students has been exemplary."

Campbell's leadership experience was started in 2009 as the principal of Greenway High School from July to July 2011. He was then in charge of being an Activities Director at Brainerd High School, overseeing over 40 athletic and fine arts programs. Growth in co-curricular activities for students was a characteristic of his leadership during his term.

"I am super excited, yet, humbled to be able to step forward into a new leadership capacity where I can stay involved in education, activities, and athletics," said Campbell. He also stated that his main vision would focus on building a massive connection between schools, coaches, and administrators.

This vision is perfectly aligned with the League's purpose to provide educational and leadership opportunities for students throughout its membership of public, private, online, charter, and home schools through interscholastic athletic and fine arts events.
