Gary Campbell Appointed as Newest Board of Education Member
The Skaneateles Board of Education recently appointed Gary Campbell to fill the previously vacant seat during a special meeting on Friday, October 1.
Gary and his family have been Skaneateles residents since 2004. Their eldest, Raenah, (class of 2017) just completed her B.Sc. in Nutritional Sciences at Drexel University. Their son Matheu (class of 2021) is a freshman at The University of Columbia, College of Engineering, New York, pursuing a B.Sc. Engineering degree. Maya (class of 2029) is the youngest of the three children and currently attends State Street Intermediate. Gary’s wife, Rhonda Gall-Campbell, teaches sixth grade Science and Social Studies in the Southern Cayuga School District.
Gary holds a B.Sc. Electrical & Computer Engineering and Masters in Business Administration. He has functioned in various domestic and international leadership capacities in the primary metals, power generation, downstream petrochemical and bio-pharma industries, as well as in the design and construction of several greenfield sites and their subsequent operations. Gary is currently developing his consultancy with a core focus on the comprehensive optimization of business management and technical processes within small, medium and micro enterprises and owns a manufacturing company in Syracuse NY. Being native to the Caribbean and having firsthand experiences living in different cultures, the value, benefits and importance of community involvement, diversity and inclusion, are of great significance to the Campbell family. Whether it is Matheu’s weekly classical piano performances at the senior living center, Rhonda’s teaching of faith formation classes at St. Mary’s, Raenah’s coaching with the “Philly Girls in Motion,” or Maya accompanying Gary with Skaneateles Lions’ Club citrus fundraiser deliveries, giving back to their community is of paramount importance.
Gary is both honored and humbled to have an opportunity to be of service to the broader Skaneateles Community via his involvement on the Skaneateles Board of Education.
