Family, friends and colleagues attended the ceremony and paid tribute to the tireless work Campbell did to enable customers and employees to gain the knowledge and skills they needed to stay at the leading edge of pump technology. During the dedication, ceremony family members unveiled a plaque that will adorn the entrance of the Campbell Education Center.
