On Sept. 26, the 2018 DuBose Award for Distinguished Service was presented to Maria Bouchelle Campbell of Birmingham, Alabama. The award, presented to Campbell during the DuBose Alumni Gathering banquet, recognizes the significant ways a person has served The Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion. The University of the South, with its historic roots in the Anglican ecclesiastical and academic traditions, seeks to honor those whose life and work represent distinguished service to these traditions.
Campbell has been a faithful servant of The Episcopal Church and the University of the South for many decades. She is the daughter of an Episcopal priest whose associations with Sewanee run back to summers on the Mountain as a child. She is a layperson profoundly involved in the church over many decades in the Diocese of Alabama. She served in multiple leadership roles at both the national and international levels through her tenure as part of the senior staff of the parish of Trinity Church, Wall Street, New York City. Campbell has also been a member of the University of the South’s governing boards and chair of the board of St. Andrew’s-Sewanee School. Campbell’s contributions represent a lifetime of faithful service, and for that service, the Church and the University will be eternally grateful.
