Sarah Cameron of East Rockingham High School has been named WHSV's Student Athlete of the Year for 2013. She was chosen by the Student Athlete of the Week committee from a pool of the 31 Student Athlete of the Week Award winners. Sarah said she didn't expect to win the award.
"It's an honor to be given this distinction," Cameron said. "I had no idea. They shocked me with the big check; I felt like I won the lottery or something, but I lived up high school as much as I could have."
"College is a big step, but I'm fully confident I can do well there. I worked my whole life for the state championships that we got, but this is a nice added bonus to go with it."
Cameron will receive a $1,000 scholarship from Mountain Valley Burger King. While at ERHS, Sarah won state titles in basketball and tennis.
