Graduation Day for Cam! Class of 2021

It’s graduation day for Cam! FPD and I were able to attend the event IN PERSON. No Zoom graduation this year. WOOHOO!

We are so proud of Cam. He persevered through some tough loss this year. He attended approximately 8 weeks of in person school. Everything else was cancelled or done virtually. I don’t think any adolescent enjoys that. Cam couldn’t do it at all. His grades began to tank, mental health was not what it once was. But, as the world slowly opened up again, so did Cam, and we saw the return of the kid we always knew. He rejoined the Track team and his grades began to improve. He ended the year a little closer to where he was before the whole world was rocked by something none of us could have imagined and definitely couldn’t control.

He is wearing a blue t-shirt and navy blue shorts.

After Cam’s graduation day, his plan is to enjoy this summer to the max, and then head to UW-Madison to major in education. He isn’t sure what he’ll teach or if he’ll become a school counselor. But, he knows that coaching is in his future. He is an amazing athlete, and we are so proud of the adult he is becoming.
