Regent University president, Dr. Carlos Campo has been named to the board of E3: Elevate Early Education, a Virginia social entrepreneurial venture created in 2012 by business, civic and philanthropic leaders working to address the urgent need for increased public investment in early education for Virginia's children, birth to age five.

President Campo has long been a champion of improving early childhood education. Prior to moving to Virginia, he was a member of the Nevada State P-21 Commission, which developed a strategic educational continuum from preschool through college completion.

He has been recognized in "Who's Who Among American Teachers" and as an "Outstanding Educator" and "Educator of the Year" by local and national organizations. He has also served on the board of Smart Beginnings South Hampton Roads, another early education advocacy group.

"It is an honor to serve with E3's board chairman, Gary McCollum, and E3 president and CEO Lisa Howard," President Campo said. "They, along with many other Virginians, understand the importance of Virginia's education systems and the need to focus on ways to make them the best in the nation. We look forward to advocating for this remarkable investment opportunity: the educational lives and futures of Virginia's youngest residents."

McCollum, senior vice president and general manager of Cox Communications in Virginia, served with President Campo on the Smart Beginnings board.

"Dr. Campo will be a robust addition to our E3 board. His connections in higher education, as well as in the business and faith communities, will be a powerful asset as we challenge state policy makers to make early education a priority," McCollum said.
