Beth Campbell gets nod after more than 20 years of coaching competitive cheer and five state championships.
According to CCCAM officials, Campbell earned her honor by virtue of her outstanding contribution to the sport of competitive cheer, outstanding contribution to the CCCAM organization, outstanding achievement in the sport of competitive cheer, and competitive cheer coaching experience of at least 15 years.
In nominating Campbell for the hall of fame, Walled Lake Western High School cheer coach Amber Stocks said Campbell has not only been a mentor to her, but a mentor to many.
"Beth's helpful demeanor and her passion for the sport has inspired me and many others," Stocks said. "I don’t think there is anyone better for this honor. When you think of all the great people in the cheer world, her name immediately comes to mind. Plus, her knowledge of this sport and the ideas and creativity she brings each year have, in my opinion, helped change the evolution of the sport."
Now into her 21st year of coaching, the seventh heading the Irish cheer program, Campbell spent 13 years as head coach of Troy High School's competitive cheer program. She was named district coach of the year in 2009, 2010, 2012, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018, and regional coach of the year in 2009, 2014 and 2015. In 2018, Campbell earned state coach of the year honors after completing her fifth state championship season with Notre Dame (2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018).
“Being named to the hall of fame is such an honor and very humbling," Campbell said after learning of the CCCAM news. "As a coach, it represents the quality of student-athlete I have been able to work with for the last 20 years. And the support of the parents, who trust me with their own miracles, has been incredible. I’m so thankful to share this with all of my teams and with the school community.”
Campbell also has been a member of the CCCAM board for eight years, serving as the Summit co-chair for two years, and most recently as membership director.
In early 2015, she received the 2014 Coach of the Year award at the state level for Girls Spirit from the NFHS Coaches Association, which is the official national coaches association of the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS).
Campbell, who has her three children enrolled at Notre Dame, also serves as the Pontiac, Michigan-based school's director of alumni relations, a position she's held since May 2014.
