Happy Birthday Rich Campbell!

Rich Campbell, DMG and Chris PutnamHappy Birthday to Rich Campbell, one of my former Journalism students from St. Augustine High School!

Rich was on The Oracle staff for two school years, from 1982-84. After graduating from Saints, he landed a baseball scholarship to the University of Dubuque (Iowa), where he played catcher and learned about cold weather! He also earned a degree in Business Marketing, which led to his current job with Wells Fargo Bank. He lives now in Chula Vista, with his wife Lisa and their two children.

Over the years, Rich and I have kept in touch and we get together from time to time. In March he and I attended all four days of the Aztec Invitational Baseball Tournament that opened San Diego's new Petco Park. This photo was taken on the second day, and it shows Rich on the left, with me in the middle and Rich's Saints classmate Chris Putnam on the right. Chris flew down from San Francisco to join us for the final three days of the tournament.
