Laurel Hill resident recalls 99 years of change; 'home is home'

"We had heat and lights and that was good, but there was no money for field trips and that kind of thing. And we didn't have any resource officers and we didn't need them."

After teaching seventh through 11th grades, Campbell helped establish Laurel Hill School's library.

"I started at Laurel Hill and I ended at Laurel Hill. I was the librarian — no! I was a ‘media specialist,’ but I didn't care much about the media part of it," she said. "I liked being just a librarian."

Campbell is fascinated by evolving technology, but she said not all developments in education are as beneficial as they're touted to be.

"I know a woman who's taking courses online and she studies hard and she seems fairly intelligent, but ... I think you need somebody there to explain things you don't understand. There's nobody there to teach you if you don't understand something.

"... There's no interaction with other students and taking part in extracurricular activities. All that, to me, is part of your education."
