HHS student Cameron Best, a sophomore highly involved in the school’s robotics program, was recently selected as a finalist for the FIRST Dean’s Award.

FIRST is an organization that holds regional, state, and nationwide robotics competitions in order to inspire students’ interest in science and technology and seeks to award students that exhibit the highest level of skill, dedication and leadership with the Dean’s List award.

Cameron was named a finalist of only three island-wide and will be traveling to Detroit to attend the FIRST World Championship. Additionally, he will be recognized by the organization for his outstanding achievement.

“Cameron is an incredible robotics student who exhibits strong leadership in our club, even though he’s only a sophomore,” said robotics teacher Michael Pinto. “He mentors many of the younger robotics teams in the Harborfields elementary and middle schools as well, and is extremely dedicated to the field of technology.”

Cameron started working with robots when he was in fourth grade. While he is only halfway through high school, he hopes to pursue mechanical or aeronautical engineering in college.

Way to go Cameron!
