Mr. Albert Cammon was a hero in the battle for fair education for all. Although not an educator himself, he nonetheless promoted education as a valuable commodity. His efforts brought about the opening of a high school for black students on the east bank, Bethune High School. Albert Cammon Middle School in St. Rose was named in his honor. The painting shown hangs in the school. (The artist is unknown; used with the school’s permission.)
