Hello Cameronites! To see President Barack Obama be re-elected for a second term was one of the most gratifying moments that I have had in my life. A surge of joy and optimism overwhelmed me as I recalled all of the abuse and disrespect this President had to endure in the last four years. No other President that I know of in my life time had to exist in this type of climate. Yet he stood tall, faced adversity and continued to stay focused. No doubt he will go down in history as one of the great leaders this country has ever known. When we think of the Cameron High Alumni legacy, we think of something that has been handed down. So, we ask ourselves, what has been handed down over the years that has molded us into the person that we are now? It had to start with our parents whose values we first experienced. For most of us those genuine values were continued and fostered through our teachers. During my generation our teachers were most important, because that’s when life and its opportunities began to open up to us. Our teachers were our parents away from home. They were highly respected and our parents demanded that we respect them. “Seeds,” were sown in our minds that we could be whatever we wanted to be through honesty, integrity and hard work. And most of all, a feeling that we were somebody, just as gifted and talented as anyone else prevailed in the classroom. A section in our yearbooks always contained pages asking us what we wanted to be in life. As I look back, many of those aspirations and dreams were manifested in us and came true. So, on this weekend we celebrate two of those faculty members that had a profound effect on our lives while at Cameron, Miss Ola Hudson and Mr. Leonard Morton. We thank you so very much. The Cameron High Alumni Association is “Alive and Well.” Our legacy of planting “financial seeds” into the lives of young graduates will continue with much enthusiasm! I accept the Presidency of this Alumni Association with much humility. It is a great organization with a great mission. I’ve seen how hard you have worked within this organization. I am aware of your individual contributions whether in finances, labor or participation. For that we say “Thanks.” I am encouraged. Adversity will come and go, but with your determination and will, the Cameron High Alumni Association will flourish! Let us continue to move “Forward.” There is a piece of us in all of us! That’s why we’re FAMILY! We have a “BIG VISION” for the Cameron High Alumni Association. We’re fired up, Ready to go!

George McLaurine, President CAMERON HIGH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION, INC.

Oscar Robert Jackson, Sr.

scar Robert Jackson, Jr. was one of a kind. Oscar Robert Jackson, Sr., born on August 8, 1914, Nashville, Tennessee, was the fourth of five children of the late William and Lizzie Payton Jackson. The curtain fell on his earthly life on Sunday, May 8, 1988, at Meharry-Hubbard Hospital, after an extended illness. He was educated in the public schools of Nashville, Tennessee, graduating from Pearl High School in 1931. His educational goals and objectives were attained through his studies at Tennessee State University where he received the B. S. Degree; North Carolina Central University, M. S. Degree; Yale University, Certificate of Alcohol Studies; Mammouth College, Diploma in Reading; and Post-Graduate work, Fisk University. After graduating from college, he served as Dean of Men at Natchez College 1914 - 1988 and Tougaloo College in Mississippi. In 1950, he returned to Nashville to teach for a year at Washington Junior High School. He served as Principal of Carter-Lawrence Elementary School from 1951 until the spring of 1958. In the fall of 1958, Mr. Jackson became Principal of Cameron High School, which is the location now for Cameron Middle School. He served as Principal of Cameron until suffering a heart attack in 1970. He retired from Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools on April 23, 1971. He was a member of Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, member of the Vestry, member of the Choir, and was a Lay Reader for seventeen years. Mr. Jackson was a charter member of Bordeaux North YMCA; served on the Board of Directors of the Nashville Urban League and South Street Center; member of the Board of Commissioners, Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency; member of the Board, Grace M. Eaton Day Home; Life Member of the National Education Association, National Association of Secondary School Principals, Tennessee Retired Teachers Association, Omega Psi Phi Fraternity; member of NAACP, the Alumni Association of Tennessee State University, Phi Delta Kappa (George Peabody College Chapter), 33rd Degree Mason, and Frontiers International.. The death of Mr. Jackson ended a chapter in the history of education where he left his imprint on the lives of many students. He was a legend; he possessed the drive, the energy, the courage, the determination, the almighty will, and the Grace of God which characterized him as having marks of an educated man. He was a man for all seasons. He was a “tough boss” who could be abrasive, but one knew he was a teacher with a mission. Mr. Jackson was king of all he surveyed and no one seemed to have ever doubted it. Mr. Jackson, as has been noted, was a legend in education — and legends tend to live on in the minds of those who remember. He has now passed the torch to a new generation.

CAMERON HIGH ALUMNI ASSOCIATION HISTORY OF THE ORGANIZATION The Cameron High Alumni Association was created on the second Friday of June, 1986 at the Hilton Airport Inn after the former Cameron High School Faculty Luncheon (now the Annual Fellowship Luncheon). A group of former students began to discuss how they could perpetuate the memory of Cameron High School and of our beloved principal, O. R. Jackson. This founding group was comprised of Harry Beamon, Jeanette Brown, Claude Cartwright, Julius Darden, John L. Fair, Eula Hendricks, Patria Haley-Howard, Josephine S. Jackson, Ronnie Johnson, Ronald Myles, Kenneth Southall, Charleene Spencer, Jimmy Wallace, Charles Watkins, and Evelyn Watson.

This core group formed the Cameron High Alumni Association with the purpose of creating a scholarship fund for descendants of Cameron High School alumni. The first elected officers in 1986 were Patria Haley-Howard, president; Harry Beamon, first vice president; Jewell Betty, second vice president; Rollie McAdoo, third vice president; Ronald Myles, treasurer; Claude Cartwright, Barbara Snell, and Bill Taylor, assistant treasurers; Ethel Rucker, recording secretary; Josephine Jackson and Kenneth Southall, assistant secretaries; Tonya Matlock, Evelyn Watson, and Barbara Willams, corresponding secretaries; Eddie Frierson, chaplain; Charles Watkins, assistant chaplain; Ronnie Johnson, parliamentarian; and Charleene Spencer, historian.

The association’s first official meeting site was the conference room in Gentry Center on the campus of Tennessee State University. It is here that the groundwork was laid to establish what has become a vital and successful alumni association. The group’s first mission was to establish fund-raising activities to build the scholarship fund. Thus was born the Blue and Gold Week-end. The festivities have historically occurred on the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday after Thanksgiving. In its first year, activities included the Blue and Gold Banquet at the Sheraton Music City Hotel, the Blue and Gold Ball at the National Guard Armory, and Sunday Worship Service at Mt. Ararat Baptist Church. For some years the Birdland Revue extended the Blue and Gold Week-end, parading extraordinary talent, old and new.

The Blue and Gold Ball has been the major fundraiser for the CHAA. For the first nine years, the ball was held at the National Guard Armory or the Municipal Auditorium. For the next nine years, the ball was held at the Millennium Maxwell House Hotel. In 2010, to lend an added air of elegance and to provide additional monies to the scholarship fund, the dinner/dance site was the Music City Sheraton Hotel.

The following alumni have served as president of our organization: Patria Haley-Howard, 1986-89; Harry Beamon, 1989-91; Claude Cartwright, 1991-93; Josephine S. Jackson, 1993-95; Tonya Chavers Frierson, 1995-97 and again from 2004-06; Jalilah Haqq (Jewell Betty), 1997-2000; Eula Hendricks, 2000-04; Shirley Edmondson, 200608; Charles E. Watkins, 2008-2012; and George McLaurine, the current president.

The organization has taken on, or has been a part of, many activities in its twenty-six-year history, including spearheading the naming of the Hull-Jackson Montessori School, and providing assistance to both the Hull-Jackson Montessori School and to Cameron Middle School. The CHAA has sponsored a bus trip to Atlanta, GA and a cruise to the Bahamas. In 2003, The CHAA donated a picture of Mr. H. A. Cameron and awarded a $1,000 scholarship to Cameron Middle School. This was the year that the association opened its Archives, or Alumni Room at Cameron Middle School. Continued on next page

Continued from p. 3 This room has become a virtual treasury of rare Cameron High School memorabilia and is the current site of CHAA meetings, both regular (second Tuesday of each month from September-June) and special. The Alumni Room also hosts the Cameron football brotherhood that meets once a month.

In past years, the CHAA has hosted and directed a Gospel Extravaganza, bringing together local churches and choirs to benefit Cameron Middle School. The Cameron singers, led by Mr. Leonard H. Morton, were another by-product of the CHAA. This group formed an important nucleus of what is now the Pearl Cameron Community Choir, which, under the continued direction of Mr. Morton, celebrated its 10 th anniversary in 2010. The CHAA is responsible for the designation of the Cameron facility as an historical monument and therefore part of the National Register; as such, it cannot be destroyed.

More recently, CHAA military veterans participated in the Veterans’ Day Celebration at Cameron School (in the 200809 academic year). The CHAA hosted its first annual Spring Fling in late May 2009 on the Cameron football field, and will continue to hold this event in future years to benefit the scholarship fund. Also in 2009, the CHAA achieved nonprofit, tax exempt status, a long-sought accomplishment that will significantly reduce costs and increase revenue.

The Lifetime Membership list of the CHAA has reached almost 300 to date. The CHAA continues to actively seek contributions of $100.00 from Cameron alumni and friends to increase the size and the force of this crucial group. The CHAA Newslink, published four times a year, is distributed to all lifetime members. Our official website is www.cameronalumni.net.

The CHAA has awarded over $100,000 in scholarships during its twenty-six years. The fund is named after O. R. Jackson, who served as principal for most of the 15 years of Cameron High School’s existence (1957-1971). Our organizational focus is to provide educational/financial assistance to deserving young men and women, to foster fellowship, unity, and, support among our membership, and to perpetuate goodwill among those we touch. We hold closely to our hearts our motto, because the Cameron High School experience is precious and unique: “MANY IMITATE, BUT NONE CAN DUPLICATE.”

Miss Ola Hudson

la G. Hudson, CFCS, is a native Nashvillian who was reared along with her eight siblings by devoted Christian parents, the late Benjamin F. and Rachel Tarrant Hudson. A product of the public schools, she graduated from Pearl High School and received both BS and MS degrees from A & I State College, now Tennessee State University. In 1987 she became a member of the first group certified by the American Home Economics Association, now known as the, American Association of Family and Consumer Sciences. Her long and successful career included teacher of Home Economics at Franklin Training School in Franklin, and Cameron and East High Schools in Nashville, Tennessee; program assistant in the Human Relations Department; coordinator of Home Economics/Health Sciences Technology/Technology Preparation and interim director of Vocational, Adult and Community Education, Metropolitan Public Schools. Among the innovative and highly successful programs she either initiated or coordinated were: (1) the first laboratory pre-school program to be held in cooperation with a Metro Schools Child Development class. (2) a federally-funded program “A Night on the Town�, in which seniors from seven selected Metro high schools received an etiquette booklet , which she authored, and training prior to going out on the town as a homeroom group to a restaurant and entertainment of their choice. Her forty-one year career continues to be a source of pride and satisfaction as she continually meets former students and their parents who cite incidents and evidence of the impact she had on their lives. Two examples of the esteem of former students and parents came when she was inducted into the Tennessee Teachers Hall of Fame upon the nomination of a former student and her parents; and the Ola G. Hudson Scholarship given by the Detroit Cameron High Alumni Association to a T S U student. An active member of Spruce Street Baptist Church, she is former chairman of the Trustee Board. Currently, she is a member of the Board of Deacons; the Sanctuary Choir; the Spruce Street Community Development Corporation; and advisor to the Vareda Williams Missionary Circle. She also served as chairman of the Board of the Spruce Street Golden Manor, Inc. which facilitated the planning and construction of this 23 unit Senior Independent Living Apartment complex. Other volunteer activities include: past president of the Metropolitan Nashville Retired Teachers Association; secretary, Board of Directors of the Metrocenter Teachers Apartment; member, Pearl-Cohn Teen Learning Center Board; past president, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority; member and past chairman, TSU Agriculture and Home Economics Hall of Fame Committee. In addition to these organized volunteer efforts, her greatest joy comes from the countless hours she spends while ministering to family members, friends, church and Sorority members as well as strangers who are sick, hungry, needy, bereaved or lonely. These and other volunteer efforts have lead to these recent honors: cited as a Local Visionary and included in the first edition of the book `A Wealth of Wisdom`, 2003, edited by Camille Cosby and Renee Poussaint and inauguration of the Ola G. Hudson Volunteer Leadership Award,2005, to be given annually by the Tennessee State University Cooperative Extension Program; and induction into the TSU Agriculture and Home Economics Hall of Fame, 2006.

In Loving Tribute to

Mr. James McKinley Robinson Cameron High School Assistant Principal, Principal, Scholar, and Gentleman A builder builded a temple;

A teacher builded a temple:

He wrought with care and skill: -

She wrought with skill and care; _

Pillars and groins and arches

Forming each pillar with patience,

Were fashioned to meet his will;

Laying each stone with prayer.

And men said when they saw its beauty:

None saw the unceasing effort:

“It shall never know decay.

None knew of the marvelous plan:

Great is thy skill, O Builder,

for the temple the teacher builded

Thy fame shall endure for aye.”

Was unseen by the eyes of man.

Gone is the builder’s temple; Crumbled into the dust, Pillar and groin and arches Food for consuming rust; But the temple the teacher builded Shall endure while the ages roll; For that beautiful, unseen temple Was a child’s immortal soul. – Annonymous

We are grateful for the numerous young men and women you helped develop at Cameron High school, and throughout the school system.
