McKinney was nominated to attend the program by his fifth grade teacher at Batesville Intermediate School. In addition to being a student of merit class and on the superintendent list, Camron is also passionate about reading and learning as a whole.

He is looking forward to gaining the knowledge and leadership skills that his conference provides. He is the son of Barcel and Alisha McKinney, and a member of Pope Chapel AME Zion Church.

“As an alumna of Envision myself, I am excited for Camron to meet, work and collaborate with other high-aspiring students from across the country,” said Amanda Freitag Thomas, SVP and GM for Envision. “Hands down, my favorite part of attending an Envision program was being with motivated students in an environment designed to help us challenge our assumptions, meet new people, and grow. Creating that same learning environment is a central focus for all of our programs..”

Since 1985, Envision programs have served more than 800,000 students in more than 145 countries, with programs designed to help students develop the leadership, scholarship and career skills needed to succeed in today’s competitive college and career landscape.
