MNHHS Welcomes New Youth Service Center Coordinator

maroons 300MADISONVILLE, Ky. (9/7/13) – Before taking the new Youth Service Center Coordinator position at Madisonville North Hopkins High School, David Randall Campbell was no stranger to interacting and being a leader/role model for students.
 
Mr. Campbell started the new Youth Service Center Coordinator position on July 1 of this year and is already stepping up to the responsibilities and challenges of this new position.
 
“I was at Browning Springs Middle School for seven years before I took this position,” said David Campbell. “I went from Browning Springs with 450 kids to Madisonville North with 1,150 kids. And might I say, Madisonville North is a totally different animal. Not a bad animal, just a totally different animal. So far it has been a fun adventure.”
 
Mr. Campbell also said there have been times he has had to call and reach out to the other coordinators for advice on how to do things. He also said that he is fascinated by how well the teachers and staff at North Hopkins really work together to make sure the student’s needs are being met.
 
“I will tell you, the other coordinators have been such a resource for me,” said Campbell. “I’ve called them up and said I don’t know what to do and then they help me. And might I add too… WOW, the teachers and staff here just work together so well to get things done. I’m just so excited to be a part of it.”
 
The Youth Service Center also provides students with the backpack program. Currently Mr. Campbell has 25 students that are part of the program and every Friday he supplies his students with food for the weekend that is donated from a local church. Each month Mr. Campbell calls around town looking for job listing for those students who are looking for a job.
 
“Oddly enough we have a lot of students who don’t have food at home. And we work hard to feed our children,” said Campbell. “The purpose of the youth service is so when kids are in school, their minds are on school… it’s not oh man do I have clean clothes or food to eat. So when they are sitting in class we want them to have all the tools to be successful in class. Whether its school supplies, food in their bellies or clothing. We take it very seriously.”
 
As part of his new position, Mr. Campbell has teamed up with the Madisonville Police Department and put together a workshop to inform parents/guardians about social media safety.
 
“Officer Couchman from the MPD will be here on Monday to talk about internet safety and social media safety. The fact that all of our students are on involved with social media of some sort and the parents don’t always understand or know what their kids are doing and this is just an opportunity to see what’s going on,” said Campbell. “And it’s not like social media is a bad thing but how to use it and use it properly and for parents to protect their children. It’s a good program and all we want to do is to protect our kids. ”
 
This workshop will take place Monday, September 9, from 5:30pm – 6:30pm in the North Hopkins library. This workshop will also count for those who are looking to receive holiday assistance from the youth service center.
