Time, as we all know, if wasted, it can never be recovered. Wasting time has never been something that Raceland-Worthington senior Cameron Bell did during his years at Raceland. In fact, Cameron could often be seen chasing time as he competed under the Friday night lights and on the track. Cam is the son of Travis and Jessica Bell. He has been a student of Raceland-Worthington Independent Schools since his preschool years.

  As an athlete, Cam has achieved many milestones and received several recognitions. Most notably Cam was recognized as Football-All Area First team (22, 23), All District Team (23), Track and Field- All Area First Team (22, 23), All State Second Team (23).

  Cameron has truly excelled in varsity track and when asked about his fondest memories of track he replied, “Giving Coach Helton a hard time.” All jokes aside, Cameron’s hard work and determination have led him to become a well-respected athlete.

  Coach Randy Helton had a lot to say about Cam and what he brought to the track program. “My favorite memory of Cam was watching him run in our 4 x 100 Relay at the 2023 Class A State Meet, when we finished third. He was also part of our 4 x 200 Relay which finished eighth. We overachieved in both relays.”

  “He has always excelled in the sprinting events and the sprint relays for us. Cam is very coachable. He always comes to practice ready to work and do whatever we ask of him. He is the true definition of a team player and a program guy. He's a guy you can build your track program around,” Coach Helton continued. “If I had 20 Cam Bells on my team every year, I'd probably never retire! He's a great athlete and an even better person. I couldn't say anything bad about him even if I was lying, lol.”

  His accomplishments have gone far beyond his athletic ability. In the fall of 2024, Cameron plans to attend Morehead State University where he will be majoring in Accounting. Cameron received the Morehead State University Merit Scholarship and Morehead State University Alumni Scholarship.

  Cameron also devoted a lot of his time to being a leader amongst his peers. While at Raceland High School, Cameron participated in Beta Club, Key Club, FBLA, and Student Government/Council. He held the office of Vice-President for the Student Government/Council. Outside of school, Cameron has also been active in his church’s youth group.

  Cameron expressed his gratitude for help that was given to him by the school staff. “I’m thankful for Mr. Lemon and Coach Helton for teaching me numerous skills as well as setting me up to be prepared for life to come.”

  Aside from the support shown within the schools, Cameron is also grateful for all the support that has been given to him. Cameron expressed, “There have been countless friends and family members who have taught me valuable lessons, but I would especially like to recognize my Mom (Jessica Damron-Bell) and Dad (Travis Bell).” That’s proof of the importance of parental support as kids navigate through their school years.

  The Raceland Community and the Raceland-Worthington Independent School District celebrate and congratulate Cameron Bell for his many accomplishments. May God bless you.
