Cam High’s annual Scorpion Showcase invited parents to explore their child’s day at school and meet the staff of Cam High.

Cam High hosted its annual Scorpion Showcase, where parents were invited to explore their student’s day at school.

The Scorpion Showcase began at 5:00 P.M. with a presentation by Cam High’s Student Resource Officer Deputy Mike Legge in regards to vaping. Parents were educated on the dangers of vaping, signs to watch for, and ways to prevent vaping. The Silent Auction also began at 5:00 P.M. and took place outside the library. The Class of 2020 auctioned off game tickets, gift certificates, a stadium chair, movie tickets, and a water cooler.

Cam High’s junior class raised a record amount during its silent auction, raking in $5,125 that will go to benefit the class’s Prom, Graduation, and Class Gifts.

Ventura BBQ, Music Boosters, and Mister Softee’s Ice Cream were present at the Scorpion Showcase, benefiting the Class of 2020. Parents were invited to check out these trucks along with the Parent and Community organizations tables, and the Spirit Wear and Silent auction table, benefiting the senior class and junior class, respectively.

At 6:00 P.M., the Scorpion Showcase presentation began. A number of Cam High staff members commented that it was the lowest attendance they’d seen in many years.

Principal Dr. Kim Stephenson introduced other faculty and administrators. Cam High’s Song Team, Dance Class, Winter Colorguard, and Winter Drumline appeared for performances during the presentation in the gym. The Cam High PTSA and Cam High’s Music Boosters and Athletic Boosters also made presentations. The PTSA presented their annual service awards.

After the Scorpion Showcase presentations, parents were invited to walk around the campus and explore their student’s schedules and classes until 8:00 P.M., when the event ended.
