Whatcom Community College Recent Athletic Honors Include National Scholar Award

Whatcom Community College soccer player Camron Miller was selected to the 2018 Junior College Men’s Scholar All-America Team by the United Soccer Coaches Association. Student athletes are selected by a national committee based on their cumulative GPA, proven athletic ability, and contributions to their team’s success. Camron, from Snohomish, is the first athlete in college history to win this award. He will be honored with the rest of the All-America players at a ceremony in Chicago in January. Camron, a sophomore pursuing an associate in business degree, was also named a Northwest Athletic Conference (NWAC) all-star and excellence award winner. He is transferring to Western Washington University for winter quarter, where he was also awarded an athletic scholarship. “Camron has displayed character, leadership, and is constantly putting others, the community, WCC, and the soccer program before himself,” said WCC men’s soccer coach Jason Jorgensen. “We talk about being a ‘complete champion’ from the time a student athlete sets foot on campus to the time they leave, and Cam has done just that.” The Orca men’s soccer team finished second in NWAC and first in their division this season.
