To start off this past weekend was the statue unveiling on Friday at 3 p.m. This last event of Founder’s Week had shirts and cupcakes free to students which made many people come out. By 2:30 there was a long line of students who wanted to make sure they received a t-shirt of their size.
Once each student had been given a ticket for a t-shirt and a cupcake or two, the ceremony began. Descendants of founder J.A. Campbell were there to see the statue of him unveiled. It was really an exciting thing to have the family of J.A. Campbell with us for the ceremony on February 6th.
That Friday night, students gathered in Carter Gym for Sleepless Nights, a charity dance. Students were to bring school supplies of an entrance fee of $2 to support local students. The students danced the night away in their pajamas.
On Saturday, campus was filled with many students from local middle and high schools for Science Olympiad. Many Campbell students volunteered by supervising and grading the events.
Greek recruitment also ended this past weekend and our campus now has many new Greek members to different sororities and fraternities.
