A Message From Our Principal

Hello, Harrison High!

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! I am excited to begin my third year as principal at Harrison! I grew up in West Cobb and attended Due West Elementary, Pine Mountain Middle, and North Cobb High School where my Hoya connections began. In fact, an early experience I had with Harrison is that I was present at the first ever pep rally with my husband in 1991 to present the newly formed staff and student body their initial mascot: an English bulldog raised by my family! I am honored to carry on the legacy of excellence as Harrison’s principal and will always remember that Harrison built a tradition from the ground up when the school was founded in 1991 around the vision of "Helping Our Youth Achieve Success." This vision means that our staff is committed to strengthening the college and career readiness skills so our Hoyas are highly competitive at the state and national levels for college admissions and prepared for their next steps after high school graduation. Over the years, our community has thrived because of its dedicated students, talented faculty, supportive stakeholders, and strong extra-curricular programs. As principal, I can assure you that I will continue to foster these traditions as we begin Harrison’s 27th year of excellence. I always look forward to partnering with our stakeholders to advance ALL areas at Harrison (academics, athletics, and fine arts).

I am entering my twenty-sixth year in the Cobb County School District, began my teaching career at Lassiter High in 1992 as a Language Arts teacher, and later taught at Kennesaw Mountain High School. I have also served the Cobb County School District working as an Area Lead Teacher at Barber Middle School and supporting other K-12 teachers in the West/North Cobb area schools. I later returned to Lassiter in 2008 as an assistant principal. I have a B.S. in English education from the University of Georgia (GO DAWGS!), a master's degree in educational leadership with technology concentration from Kennesaw State University, and a specialist degree in educational leadership from Kennesaw State University. I have been married for twenty-five years and have two sons, 20 and 16.

Sincerely,

Ashlynn Campbell
