Cameron holds annual Convocation at university on Friday

LAWTON, Okla_A Cameron grad went back to school Friday, this time as an honored guest. 1995 graduate Brandy Peters was a featured speaker at Friday's convocation, a ceremony held at the beginning of each year to celebrate the university's dedication to academic excellence.

"It is a chance for us to recognize our honor students our scholarship recipients and let them see each other and see the wide variety of academic excellence available on this campus," Cameron Provost Dr. John MacArthur said.

Four Cameron students were given the opportunity to share what the Aggie experience has meant in their lives.

Duncan's Brandy Peters was one of the four, she's already a Cameron grad and next year she will have her Master's degree in educational leadership.

"Hopefully one day become a principal, my aspiration is to actually teach at the college level so maybe one of these days I'll be able to do that as well."

Brandy said Cameron is not your typical college.

"Faculty are so kind and caring, they're very committed to all of their students. Everyone that I've encountered really takes the time to get to know you and know your circumstances."

Getting more than one degree from Cameron doesn't make Brandy as unique as you might think.

"We do have a lot of repeat customers they have a good experience at Cameron get their degree go on with their lives come back and realize more education would be beneficial to next steps. We're pleased to have Brandy back, she did a great job with us the first time through and she's going to do a great job again this time," MacArthur said.
