SSSBA, South Suburban Small Business Association, recognizes annually a junior or senior who has started a business that benefits the community.  She was nominated and interviewed by the head of the Summit Awards committee, Don Grimwood, and proceeded to the next round. All the applicants were voted on by the executive board and Camille was chosen, even though she was a Sophomore. Camille was recognized at SSSBA's annual banquet.

Kelley who are members of the SSSBA board.
