He is a senior at Bowie High School, who is involved in Band, UIL academics, One-Act Play, Tennis, Jazz Band, NHS, and many other clubs and organizations. Last week is a perfect example of his versatility. Tuesday, Cameron played a lead role in our One-Act play which advanced to bi-district. Wednesday he lead our percussion section during our Band Concert and Sight Reading competition in Jacksboro where our band won another sweepstakes by receiving all 1’s. Thursday competed in the tennis meet in Wichita Falls and then rushed over to MSU to compete in Academic UIL.
