Ultimately, Cameron says he wants to be a positive influence to others and support the arts, and hopes to provide for a family in the way his family provided for him.

Leaving GRHS with the fondest of memories, Cameron will never forget the teachers and who uplifted him and shaped him into who he is today. He leaves his fellow Longhorns with his favorite quote: “A person should set his goals as early as he can and devote all his energy and talent to getting there. With enough effort, he may achieve it. Or he may find something that is even more rewarding. But in the end, no matter what the outcome, he will know he has been alive.” – Walt Disney
