Meet Cameron Turner, a Hayward Native and  a Math and Psychology major student at Cal State University East Bay (CSUEB) and a recent guest speaker at the Annual Education Summit.
"There are no limits for the students at Cal State University East Bay," those were the words that Cameron spoke to over 600 Bay Area students before they dispersed into workshops and college tours. Cameron is a basketball player who dreams to one day open his own nonprofit recreation center for youth.
Thank you Made in Hayward student Cameron for sharing your pathway story of becoming a student at the most diverse university in the country, CSUEB.
"CSUEB the closest thing to a family beyond home!" Cameron Turner.
