Michele Campbell earned her Bachelor’s degree in Business Management from Ashland University, a Master’s degree from Kent State University’s Higher Education Administration, and a Doctorate from the University of Akron as a Doctor of Education. Campbell then served on several posts at UA including the Assistant Dean for Student Life.

In 2006, Campbell became the Chief Operating Officer of LRMR Ventures and as part of that position, became the Executive Director of the LeBron James Family Foundation in 2010. Through the Foundation, Campbell executes LeBron’s vision to create positive change in his hometown. Under Campbell’s direction, LJFF began working on the dropout crisis facing the Akron community and launched its “I PROMISE” program targeting third graders and providing them with the resources, support and mentors they need for success in school and beyond. This life-changing program will culminate in its own Akron public school, the I PROMISE School, opening in Fall 2018.
