Cameron Adams, 343 Manor Drive, was recently selected for membership in the PVHS chapter of the National Honor Society. Cameron is the son of Kevin and Dawn Adams.
The National Honor Society is the nation’s leading organization dedicated to recognizing outstanding high school students. These students have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership and character. In addition to recognizing students for their accomplishments, the NHS also challenges them to remain actively engaged in their community and school.
Last year, the PVHS chapter of the NHS had around 200 members.
“I had the honor of writing a recommendation on Cameron’s behalf earlier this fall,” said Riverdale’s mayor, Mike Bawden. “Cameron racked up numerous service learning hours helping our City Administrator and other office personnel on a variety of projects including identifying possible contractors to help us deal with our coyote problem last year. As a part of the project, Cameron made a presentation to the Council for their consideration.”
“It’s rare to find teenagers who are willing to take on these kinds of problems, work with adult mentors and see the project all the way through. It was a pleasure to recommend him for induction into the National Honor Society.”
Cameron’s work on this issue was featured in a Channel 4 News story in January of this year.
Cameron is a junior at Pleasant Valley High School which is located in Riverdale, Iowa.
