My Dear Campbell Family:
Today marks my last day as president of Campbell University. Serving as president for the past twelve years has been the greatest honor and privilege of my life. Please know I am deeply grateful to our faculty, staff, students, alumni, friends, trustees, and presidential advisors for your encouragement, support, and hard work throughout these years we have shared together.
I am confident Campbell’s best years are ahead. Our new president, Dr. J Bradley Creed, will be a superb president. His proven record as a teacher and administrator at two outstanding faith-based universities will enable him to be an effective, inspiring, and visionary president. Above all else, I am optimistic about Campbell’s future because of our heritage as a Christian university.
Again, thank you for your goodness to me all of my forty-five years in the Campbell family. I look forward to my sabbatical year and return to serve as chancellor.
Jerry M. Wallace
