The Jo Campbell Legacy and Award

The Jo Campbell Education Support Professional Award is an award that is given to a NEA-NH ESP member that exemplifies the spirit and tenacity of Josephine “Jo” Campbell.

Jo dedicated her life to her students as an elementary school teacher, her community as a peace activist, to her co-workers as a highly active member of her local association and then went on to serve all educators as a New Hampshire Uniserv Director. As an NEA-NH UniServ Director she devoted much of her time to the betterment of Education Support Professionals in the state of New Hampshire. Jo was instrumental in implementing NEA-NH Endorsement of the Living Wage Campaign.  

A “force of nature,” “fearless,” and “empathic” are just a few words that described Jo Campbell.

Each year the ESP Committee has the task of choosing the Jo Campbell Award recipient.

Any ESP that is a member of NEA-NH may nominate themselves or be nominated by another NEA-NH member for the award.  The nominee must be a member of NEA-NH for at least three years.

The deadline for Jo Campbell submissions for the  20223 recipient is Monday, November 7th, 2022.
