Chad Campbell

Chad Campbell is an Officer at the Roxboro Police Department; he is also a Piedmont Community College (PCC) Pacer! While Chad was in high school, he took advantage of PCC’s Career and College Promise program, allowing him to enroll in college course while earning high school and college credit. During this time, he quickly realized that he enjoyed PCC’s learning atmosphere and his instructors. He also felt that the College had a lot to offer in his field of study.

After graduating from Person High School, Chad chose to continue his studies at PCC, allowing him to earned a certificate in Criminal Justice.

“Being so close to home was important to me. I had already developed relationships with my instructors, as well as my peers. It felt like the right place to be.” Chad spent a semester at PCC, furthering his education in the Criminal Justice field and preparing himself for the next chapter in his educational career.

With 47 credit hours under his belt, Chad transferred to North Carolina A&T State University where he went on to earn a degree in Criminal Justice. “Although attending a four-year university is great, it is not necessary for you to be successful. Piedmont Community College has a lot to offer!” He notes that if it were not for PCC, he would not be in the position he is today. His goal is to become a State Trooper, and he hopes to achieve that goal very soon. Today, Chad serves and protects the citizens of our community and we are proud to call him a Pacer!
