Jeanne Campion, Treasurer

Jeanne Campion was appointed to the board in July 2014 to fill an open seat and has been elected twice since then to full terms.  Her term expires in 2023. 

I have a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics Education from Illinois State University and a master’s degree also in Mathematics from the University of Illinois. I have taught at: Gibson City High School, Champaign Central High School, Parkland College, the University of Illinois and Mahomet-Seymour Junior High. In 2016 I retired from teaching.

I am a big believer that reading is the key for education. Most students complain about doing word problems in math. For quite a few of these students, it's because they are poor readers. Being a good reader can help all aspects of a student’s education.

Compared to when I grew up, libraries have changed a lot. We not only have hard copies of books, but e books, audio books, movies, and computers in the library for patrons use. Personally, I try to read about one book a week. If our library does not have the book I want, I can put it on hold using cloud library or borrowing from another library in the area. Mahomet Public Library has been a great resource for me and my family.

My family consists of my husband Jack who works for Farm Credit Illinois, daughter Jessica who is married & works in Chicago, son Michael who works in Corning NY, and our cat Rey.
