Including this year's class, the Dick Watts Stevenson Athletics Hall of Fame, founded in 2014 as the University celebrated the 20th anniversary of the start of NCAA Division III athletics in 1994, consists of 39 individuals and six Teams of Tradition. Nominees for this year's class include those who graduated from Stevenson (formerly Villa Julie College) in 2008 or earlier.
The Emeritus category honors special individuals other than student-athletes, coaches or athletic department staff members who have had a positive impact on athletics at Villa Julie/Stevenson. Inductees in this unique category are selected at the discretion of the Hall of Fame Committee. Former University president Dr. Kevin Manning was the first Emeritus inductee in 2016.
Campbell has been at Stevenson since 1998 and has served as the Athletics Direct Report throughout his tenure. Over the last 20 years, both the University and Mustang athletics have experienced tremendous growth, as Stevenson now sponsors 27 NCAA Division III sports,up from 14 before his arrival.
Campbell played a large role in the growth of athletics, including acquisition of the former Baltimore Ravens training facility upon which Owings Mills Gymnasium and Mustang Stadium were constructed, as well as the purchase of the property upon which the Owings Mills campus was built, allowing the institution to offer on-campus housing for the first time. He was also integral in Stevenson's acquisition of the Rosewood property adjacent to the Owings Mills campus, where additional athletic facilities are to be constructed. Campbell can often be seen on the sidelines at games both home and away.
