Leuzinger High School Class of 1981 - Sad News: Leuzinger Teacher Donald Keith Cameron Passes Away
I was Class of '66 and Mr. Cameron was my history teacher. He was also a coach but I dont remember him being my coach. I was in B football and water polo. Mr. Cameron was the greatest history teacher I've ever had, I went on to El Camino College then Long Beach State before President Reagan made state colleges into universities. All that meant for me is higher tuition fees. Mr. Cameron would give speech/lectures in history class about the history text book we had to read. His speeches really were inspirational for me to continue my education. When I got to El Camino and took political science, the professor reminded me of Mr. Cameron in his analysis of history. High school history classes didnt cover political science study. Mr. Cameron could very well have known the same things about political science as it related to high school history. Many in history classes in high school had little regard for it but with how Mr. Cameron taught it made me really enjoy it. I didn't finish 4-year college as Vietnam was going on and I had to enlist in the reserves to avoid being drafted. A few of my friends went to Nam but never made it back. I was lucky on that and also very appreciative of Big Mr. Cameron. ¬†He was well liked by all the students, funny but very intelligent. I dont know why he didnt become a college professor unless it was because he liked high school better. I just thought of him last night thinking he was one of my very few most inspirational teachers through high school. He was known for his 'breakfast club' which meant you came to class at 7am if you didnt do well on one of his tests or if you were unruly in class. ¬†As I recall he did coach water polo and gave me the nickname of 'stone fingers' since I was a goaly and the ball would bounce off my fingers or hands and score a goal from the opposing team. I never met Mr. Cameron's children. I just had my 67th birthday this year. Mr. Cameron was one of the most highly-regarded teachers in the district back then. Thanks, Cynthia, for your announcement and you had a fine father. ¬†walter pasternak, Class of '66
