Micah Weston Campbell

Virginia Union University, Class of 2023



Student Highlight

Micah Weston Campbell’s resilience and tenacity are inspired by the words of New York Times best-selling author John C. Maxwell, leader of a nonprofit organization that has trained more than 5 million leaders in 180 countries: “Fail early, fail often, but always fail forward.”

The outlook for business success has consistently shown that by the end of their fifth year, roughly 50% have faltered. Campbell has already determined to be in the remaining percentage of those who succeed. An accomplished athlete, he is the tenacious Panther of Virginia Union University who maintains a nearly-perfect grade point average and continues to statistically break away from the pack on the basketball court.
