Westwood principal gets 'Oscar of Teaching'

They surprised him during a school assembly. Cameron had no idea.
“This award is…I’m honored to be joining such good company. I really don’t feel like I deserve this award. I have it because of all of the good work that you do…I’m only one piece of this much larger puzzle that works so well in Westwood,” said Cameron.
