Cameron Coughlin graduated from South Mecklenburg High School in Charlotte, North Carolina, where she was president of the service club “Sabres Stand Against Indifference” (SSAI). As president, Coughlin organized two events – “Dancing for a Difference” and “Walking for Rwanda” in combination with an awareness week to focus attention on the impact of AIDS in Africa. The events raised $5,000 for Seeds of Hope and the funds ultimately benefited the Institute of Women’s Excellence in Rwanda. Coughlin volunteered at the Urban Ministry Center, organizing a Thanksgiving Dinner with homeless women and men in the community. As Student Body Vice President, Coughlin organized an Anti-Bullying Awareness Week. During her junior year, Coughlin raised more than $7,000 for the Community Health Access International (CHAI) clinic in Camp Louise, Haiti. Coughlin served on the board of CHAI and eventually became head of fundraising for the organization. She was also president of the National Honor Society, and served as captain of the Women’s Varsity Basketball team. She is currently studying Biochemistry and will volunteer at TABLE.
