The drums banged, the maracas shook, the vibraphones rang and dozens of 5th Grade voices sang out to the rhythm about respect. Wearing a black cap and headphone mic, Steve Campbell led the students at Jackson School in learning songs not only about respect, but citizenship, responsibility and fairness. It was all part of a day-long appearance at Jackson for Campbell on April 28.
