Yesterday, Best of the Batch Foundation lost our amazing and dedicated Board Chair, Bill Campbell.  The Steel Valley community lost a legend.  I lost not only a great mentor, but most of all, my friend.  My heart is heavy.  We will continue to do our part to make sure his legacy lives on.   ~ Charlie Batch

We are saddened by the passing of our Board Chair, Bill Campbell.  We send our condolences to the Campbell family and to the friends he made wherever he went.  Bill was invested in our community with his time, amazing talents and treasures.  You can see his name on schools, athletic facilities and even our Campbell Cyber Center.  We thank him for all he has done to support Steel Valley youth in becoming the Best of the Batch.  ~ Latasha Wilson Batch
