Big Walnut Middle School eighth-grader Camden (Cam) Edwards was recognized as a Student of the Month during last Thursday’s Big Walnut school board meeting.
The son of Doug and Jen Edwards, Cam has one brother, seventh-grader Cotton, and two sisters, Kylee and Kayla, fourth- and first-graders, respectively, at Hylen Souders Elementary.
Cam is a straight-A student who is currently taking advanced language arts, algebra I and Spanish I.
Cam said he enjoys video games, superhero movies, science fiction moves and television in general.
Big Walnut Middle School English language arts teacher Mike McGann said Camden’s potential is limitless.
“There is so much to Camden Edwards that can’t be put into words,” McGann said. “”Rather, it is showcased in our hallways and culture of the school. He takes pride in his work. He takes pride in his athletics. He takes pride in Big Walnut. Camden enriches our classrooms, school and community; we take great pride in him.”
A member of the Big Walnut Middle School’s student council, leadership council and athletic council, Cam is also active in the Harlem Road United Methodist Church youth group.
Asked about his future plans, Cam said he would like to study something computer-related, or law. He did know that if he were choosing a college today it would be The Ohio State University.
