15 year-old Intern and New Bedford High School Sophomore, Camron Frazier was honored Friday night at the Bay Sox final game by SouthCoast Serves (a UMass Dartmouth initiative) for his extraordinary volunteer service.
The Bay Sox ended their 2013 season with a 7-0-shutout victory over the visiting Ocean State Waves at Paul Walsh Field, which was nice!
At our annual MLK Day of Service in January, Camron committed to an additional 60 hours of service, which he completed in June.
Cameron has been volunteering at GiftsToGive since he was in the 7th grade.
Last year he was elected President of the Gentlemen’s Round Table.
Most recently he committed to support a breakfast program in downtown New Bedford and wakes at 4:30 on Saturday mornings and walks (because the bus does not run that early on Saturday morning) a mile to the downtown church where the breakfast program is held, to help them prepare and serve.
When we hear people talk about the problem with kids today – we patiently smile and tell them about Camron!
Some young people talk the talk, others walk the walk and there is Camron Frazier who is a bright and shining light of his generation.
