Washington, DC (PRWEB) April 18, 2007
National Council on Teacher Quality President Kate Walsh announced today that Andrew Campanella-- an award-winning public relations executive with significant experience in teacher quality issues--will serve as the organization's new director of communications.
Previously, Campanella served as the senior director of teacher recruitment and communications for the American Board for Certification of Teacher Excellence. He is credited for revitalizing the organization's recruitment department, successfully recruiting 3,200 new teachers through ABCTE's alternative certification program in fewer than two years. ABCTE's recruitment success under Campanella's direction resulted in praise from three governors and the National School Public Relations Association.
"We are pleased to welcome Andrew to our growing team," Walsh said. "We are confident that Andrew's expertise and energy will benefit NCTQ and help us advance our mission."
Campanella's media relations experience extends to economic development, as well. He has represented the International Association of Amusement Parks, Atlantic City, and Manassas Virginia.
Campanella is the youngest elected member of the Public Relations Society of America's Advocacy Advisory Board, an executive committee member on PRSA's public affairs and government committee, a member of the Arlington, Virginia Superintendents Commission on Accountability and Evaluation, and a member of the Metropolitan Washington YMCA DC Youth & Government advisory board.
Campanella holds a bachelor's degree in journalism and political science from The American University in Washington, DC. He lives in Alexandria, Virginia.
