PENNSBURY >> The Pennsbury School Board on May 16 unanimously approved a resolution recognizing Cameren Cooper’s two years of service as a school board representative.
Cooper, a senior at Pennsbury High School, will be graduating in June and continuing his education at Bloomsburg University.
During his tenure, the school board in its resolution said that Cooper “represented the interests of the students at Pennsbury High School, placing them above his own personal convenience.”
The board said Cooper “challenged himself throughout his career at PHS by taking honors courses with rigorous electives and in such areas as business, applied engineering and world languages.”
Cooper was recognized with the LYFT character award for his leadership skills, served as a member of the Principal’s Advisory Council and is a member of the Pennsbury chapter of the National Honor Society and the National Business Honor Society and has been named to the PHS Honor Roll.
At PHS, he served as Editor-and-Chief of the high school newspaper, the Pennsbury Voice, and the president of the Video Production Club.
He also served as a student representative to the district’s Food Service Committee and the Future Ready Committee.
Cooper also was a member of the stage crew serving as a lighting technician for theatrical productions and was a peer mentor with the Peers of Pennsbury program.
In the community, he was employed locally and received recognition in a variety of paid positions at such locations as the Office Depot in Fairless Hills and the Pennsbury Technology Department.
He has also volunteered over the years at the Bristol Riverside Theatre, the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation, Laurel House, Operation Brotherly Love and the election campaign of State Sen. Steve Santarsiero.
“His youthful energy and articulate manner continue to inspire others,” reads the school board proclamation. “Members of the school board and all the Pennsbury community they serve acknowledge his contributions and commend his devoted service.”
