Linda Benfield Campbell for the office of Vice President
My name is Linda Benfield Campbell. I currently reside in North Myrtle Beach relocating here from Columbia SC in 2010. I am originally from Statesville, NC and am currently employed with Aflac as a Sales Associate. While working with Aflac, I have held several positions including State Training Coordinator for NC, SC, and Florida, District Sales Coordinator in NC, SC, and Florida and Training Manager at Aflac’s World Wide Headquarters in Columbus, Ga. I am currently a Delegate for the Grand Strand Pee Dee Chapter of the National Association of Health Underwriters.
I attend St Andrews Catholic Church. While I was in Statesville, I held many positions within Western Avenue Baptist Church where I am still an active member. Those positions included: President of the Women’s Missionary Union, Toddler, Children and Young Adult Sunday School teacher, and was active in the Adult Choir and the Drama Team. I had the honor of being voted Woman of the Year for the Women’s Missionary Union in 1989.
I began shag dancing with my Twin Sister, Brenda, in Statesville, NC in 1996. While in Statesville I was a member of several shag clubs, and I held numerous positions within the Statesville Shag Club including Secretary, Vice President. I also chaired Entertainment/Decorating and Ways and Means committees. In September of 2001, I won the mixed Doubles Contest during SOS with Larry Davis.
I am no stranger to dance but more importantly I love to promote and preserve the dance. I dance at least 2-3 nights a week at Fat Harold’s. During this time I am either dancing or enjoy talking about my love for the dance, by getting others involved in the dance and our club.
I have been a member of the OD Shag club for 2 years. I have been the Entertainment/Decorating Co-Chair for these past 2 years and have also chaired the Vacation Giveaway Fundraiser 2013 and the Golf Cart Fundraiser this year. I have enjoyed presenting the club with what I hope is the best of the best entertainment. I am also a member of the dance team and thus promoting the shag dance to anyone who wants to learn. I have also assisted teaching the dance with Jeppy McDowell at his free classes on Tuesday night at Fat Harold’s.
I would bring my talents to the OD shag club as your next Vice President from preserving the dance itself to most importantly promoting our Club to the highest level.
