Duiel Campbell is a longtime #TeamMNPS member who joined the Supply Center in 2015 and became a “rock star” to the 30 schools he supports.

Campbell, whose first name is pronounced like the word “duel,” was nominated by an MNPS employee who has been assigned to multiple schools over several years and was impressed with the consistent “laughter with deliveries” Campbell brought to each of his schools. d. campbell portrait

To add perspective, Campbell, who has worked with the district 26 years, starts his route at 7 a.m. delivering more than just the mail. His deliveries are physically demanding; they include textbooks, furniture and PPE supplies. He even recalls delivering a hospital bed.

He feels blessed to have a job that lets him leave an impact on people along with the supplies.

“I am a people person. I do more than show up with the mail. I make an effort to create workplace relationships – learn about birthdays and celebrations,” Campbell says. “It’s the littlest things that can make a difference in a person’s day. Some people don’t realize that we are all working together to accomplish one goal – to be here for the kids.”

School administrators are impressed with Campbell’s consistency. They see the benefit in asking him to wear their school’s logo merchandise: T-shirts, hats, lanyards and more. They have even outfitted his MNPS van with school-branded car magnets.

Campbell is a native Nashvillian who grew up in the Bordeaux community. The father of four is a proud MNPS alum of Glencliff High School, Class of 1991. He had the unique opportunity to work at his alma mater for a brief time during his tenure with custodial services. Campbell started his MNPS career as a custodian in 1996 and has enjoyed the opportunity to work in schools at every tier.

When Campbell needs some downtime to recharge his magnetic personality, you can find him under the hood of a car. His “happy place” is working with his hands. He also enjoys time with his family. The soon to be half-centurion is looking forward to this milestone birthday April 1 and the celebration his family will plan
