The foundation of Cam’s leadership skills came from his experience in Katimavik, Canada’s national youth volunteer service program. Within his first week at UNBC in Prince George, moving from his hometown of Barrie, Ontario, he volunteered for a leadership role as a floor representative for Residence Council.
He works towards a sustainable campus as a member and past President of Students for a Green University (SGU) where his leadership and dedication have led to the construction of a Geodesic Dome Greenhouse on campus this summer. As Associate Director of Campus Sustainability on the Northern Undergraduate Student Society, Cam represents students and contributes to projects like the University Farmers’ Market. He is active in goBEYOND, promoting sustainability education in post-secondary institutions in British Columbia. Roles in a musical band and Bike to Work Week add to the story of this exceptional young man.
Cam is someone who doesn’t wait for invitations to get involved. Rather, he sees opportunities and seizes them. He “lives his leadership,” leading by example and as a leader of people, a leader in ideas, and a leader of, and for, the future.
