What do you love about Cameron County?
I love so many things about Cameron County. One of my favorite things is the view. I love driving around South Mountain with my friends, especially during the fall to look at the trees. The mountains always look so pretty and they really make the town feel like home.
I also really like that no matter where you go, there will always be someone around to help you with anything you may need. I remember one time I was working and when I was leaving there was a note on my window to let me know I had a flat tire. I was so thankful someone left it for me because I had no idea. I went to Sheetz to fill up my tire and as soon as I pulled in a man came right up to me and asked me if I needed help. I was so thankful for him and he immediately starting filling up my tire. That’s the kind of thing that wouldn’t happen in bigger cities and that’s what makes Cameron County such an amazing place.
Where are you going after you graduate?
After I graduate, I am going to move to West Virginia and to attend college at West Virginia University at Morgantown. I plan to major in biology and I cannot wait! I am so excited to begin my journey in becoming a Physicians Assistant. The campus is beautiful and I cannot wait to finally be a Mountaineer!!
What do you like to do in Cameron County?
What would you miss in Cameron County if it wasn't here?
If it was gone, I would really miss Sheetz. I go to Sheetz all the time and for everything! If I’m hungry, I’ll go to Sheetz and get an app platter, or if my friends are upset, or even if I’m upset, we just go to Sheetz and get a milkshake. I LOVE to go to Sheetz in the morning and get my favorite drink, a cold brew!
What would you change about Cameron County to make it better?
I would want to work towards having less drugs problems. Our town is known to others for the drug problem we have. I think if we fixed up the drug problem a little bit, more families would want to come raise their children here. No one wants to raise their child in a drug-filled town!
