ST. GEORGE, Utah.― Washington County School District and the Excellence in Equity Awards are pleased to announce that Tony Campbell has been chosen as a winner in the category: Champion of Equity - Technology Leadership.
This competitive awards program presented by the American Consortium for Equity in Education received more than 160 total nominations from across the U.S., plus a number of submissions from abroad. After the judges’ review, Mr. Campbell was selected as a winning nominee based on outstanding achievement in supporting educational equity for all learners.
“It’s an honor and a privilege—and just plain exciting—to announce the winners of the inaugural Excellence in Equity Awards program,” said Ross Romano, Program Chair of the Excellence in Equity Awards and Strategic Advisor to the American Consortium for Equity in Education. “Over the past handful of months, we’ve observed consistent interest in the program and in the overall mission of ensuring equitable opportunity for all students as a non-negotiable priority. Each of our nominees deserves our praise for their daily efforts, and we are especially pleased to recognize our winners.”
Mr. Campbell was recognized for his work to increase equity among the district’s students by consolidating the digital tools used across grade levels to provide more consistent learning experiences. Nationally, the most disadvantaged students tend to be more impacted by inconsistency in edtech. Mr. Campbell’s efforts increased the access every student had to technology and learning tools.

“I am honored and humbled to have received this award.
