Mr. James M. Cioffi – Class of 1956

We are pleased to announce the first inductee to the Campbell Memorial High School Alumni Association Hall of Fame Class of 2024.

Mr. James M. Cioffi – Class of 1956

James Cioffi, a proud 1956 CMHS graduate, has positively impacted the CMHSAA and our Campbell community throughout his life. Born and raised in Campbell, Jim only left his beloved city for one year when he attended Ohio Northern University. He just couldn’t find the love of our small, close-knit community anywhere else.

After returning to Campbell, he obtained a degree in education, specializing in mathematics, at Youngstown State University. He then taught for two years at East High School before returning to his treasured alma mater. After obtaining his Master’s degree in administration and principalship, he quickly garnered a position as principal at Reed Middle School, and finally, moved back to the hallowed halls of CMHS to serve as vice principal.

Jim has immersed himself in the Campbell community since his youth. He truly reveres our city and has been involved in every facet of our community. His family owned the local grocery store, Value King, for generations. In his teens, Mr. Cioffi began working at the grocery store, performing any task that was asked of him. For a long while, he would teach our Campbell kids during the day and serve as their parents’ butcher on nights and weekends.

The most loyal of Red Devils, Jim readily took over the position of president of the alumni assn. when we were at a crossroads as to the trajectory of our organization. He has never refused any request that our association has made and has unselfishly given of his time and efforts to ensure its continuing success. There is no doubt that this ultimate Red Devil deserves Hall of Fame honors.
