Cameron has also shown her commitment to continuing education through her volunteer service. She is president of Waubonsee's foundation and has endowed a scholarship for students seeking elementary education transfer degrees.

"I love the opportunity Waubonsee affords me to learn just for the sake of learning," she says. "I never had the time in college to study such a range of topics. To be a better person in the community, I believe you have to continue to learn."
