Linda Campbell – Vice President
My name is Linda Benfield Campbell. I currently reside in Longs, SC after 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 attend St Andrews Catholic Church and Ocean Drive Presbyterian 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 do love 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 ODSC club.
I have been a member of the OD Shag club for 6 years. I have been the Entertainment/Decorating Co-Chair, Co- Chaired the Vacation Giveaway Fundraiser 2013 and Chaired the 2014 Golf Cart Fundraiser. In 2015 I was elected to the 2016 Executive Board. I have volunteered for many of the events of The ODSC including the parades, golf tournament, ways and means, serving at the Brunches, etc. I am also an original charter member of the ODSC dance team and thus promoting the shag dance to the local community.
