Cancer Crusade Kick-Off Dinner Set For April 6

The Scotland County Unit of the American Cancer Society will hear from a local educator at the groupís annual Cancer Crusade Kick-Off dinner to be held at Keithís Cafe April 6th at 6:30 p.m.

Barbara Chasteen Campbell, a long-time teacher and coach at Scotland County R-I High School will address the meeting. Campbell graduated Summa Cum Laude from Northeast Missouri University (now Truman State) in 1972 with a BSE degree in social science. She began working at SCR-I as a history, psychology and sociology instructor. The academic quiz bowl was extended to the high school level that year and she was assigned as the coach.

Widowed, she moved to Memphis that summer with her three children, Karen, Mary Ann and David.

In 1977 Barbara earned a masterís degree in history and after extensive research she wrote the book Ella K. Ewing, Missouri Giantess:1872-1913.

In 1981 she married Larry D. Campbell. Barbara continued to teach full time until 1995. She is now semi-retired, but continues to teach introductory psychology and sociology at the high school for college credit through the interactive TV network that reaches surrounding schools as well. She also continues as the campus bowl coach, now in her 33rd year.

Area residents interested in learning more about cancer and its treatments as well as the efforts of local residents to help fight the war against the disease should plan on attending the April 6th kick-off meeting.

The Crusade Kick-Off is a Dutch treat meal. For reservations contact Maxine Cook at 465-2511 or 465-2204 or Dorothy Harvey at 465-8566.

The 2005 Scotland County Unit of the American Cancer Society is headed by chairman Arleta Dye and vice chairman Norma Monroe. June Kice serves as the groupís secretary and Twila Stevenson is the treasurer. Cook and Harvey are the groupís co-chairmen for the Cancer Crusade.
