Franklin, Tennessee Phil

Name: Phil Sherrill Campbell Jr.

Residence:  Franklin, Tennessee

Age: 44

Profession: I sell medical products for 3M Health Care.

What are your favorite hobbies or pastimes? Why do you enjoy them?  I love playing golf but don’t have the opportunity to play often. Lately, I have been spending more time with my teenage girls doing things like fishing and hiking. What a great way to enjoy them and I love the outdoors anyway.

When did you first hear about the town of Phil Campbell, Alabama?  My father (Phil Sr. –died in 2007) told me about the town when I was a teenager.

Were you able to attend the Phil Campbell Hoedown of June 2011?  YES and have been back several times since. The 2011 Phil Campbell Hoedown was unique and rewarding. It gave me and my family a chance to go help a tornado stuck town and build relationships (residents)with people that I might have never met. We all need help at times and being able to share my time with the residents of PC was priceless. Meeting my fellow Phil’s was life-touching too.  What a great way to meet them.  I believe that we were all there for the right reasons.

You are a Phil Campbell. What do you think of that name? Love it, and it has more meaning with the relationship now that I have with some of the Phil Campbell residents.

Tell us a little about yourself, as many words as you would like. I am married to Juanita and have two wonderful girls: Kathryn, who is 15, and Anna Leigh, who is 12. Juanita and I will be blessed with a 20-year-wedding anniversary this spring!  Juanita and I met while attending Middle TN State University. Kathryn loves art, ballet and dancing, while also enjoying the outdoors like fishing. Anna Leigh loves tap dancing and dance team. She too enjoys the outdoors. Both girls have great attitudes and are just a pleasure to be around.
