Cameron Parish has selected Students of the Year for the 2016 - 2017 school year. The students were selected by a committee of community representatives and teachers from throughout the parish. The Students of the Year Awards Program is designed to recognize outstanding elementary, middle/junior high, and high school students. These students are recognized for demonstrating excellent academic achievement, leadership ability, and citizenship.
The Students of the Year Awards Program is sponsored by the Louisiana State Superintendent through the State Department of Education and the State Board of Elementary and Secondary Education.
