Jeremy CamronOWENSBORO, Ky. (5/31/18) — Jeremy Camron has been selected to serve as head teacher at Owensboro Day Treatment.

That facility operates under the authority of the Kentucky Educational Collaborative for State Agency Children, a statewide organization that works with state agencies, school districts and local programs to ensure that state agency children receive a quality education comparable to all Kentucky students. “State agency children” are those in the custody or supervision of the Commonwealth and are being served in programs funded and/or operated by the Department of Juvenile Justice, the Department for Community Based Services or the Department for Behavioral Health, Development and Intellectual Disabilities.
 
Camron currently serves as college and career readiness counselor at Apollo High School, where he previously served as an arts and humanities teacher.
 
Camron has master of arts and bachelor of science degrees in education from Western Kentucky University and has earned his Rank I in areas of physical education, instructional leadership (grades K-12) and director of pupil personnel. He began his career in education as an alternative self-contained teacher/director and physical education teacher at Franklin Simpson Middle School in 2002 before joining the Daviess County Public Schools district as in-house crisis director (grades 9-12) in 2005. He served as an elementary school assistant principal in Warren County from 2011-12 before returning to DCPS in September 2012. Camron also served as a hospital corpsman in the U.S. Navy from 1993-97.
 
Camron is the founder and president of the Kentucky College and Career Coaches Association.
 
“I want to continue to create an environment of collaboration that allows the students of Owensboro Day Treatment to have every opportunity to transition ‘life ready’ for success at a new school and their future careers,” Camron said. “I'm excited about the opportunity to assist students in breaking down barriers to success and help them have a definite personal vision for the future."
 
Camron begins his new role on July 1, replacing Angela Austin, who is retiring at the conclusion of the 2017-18 school year.
 
In making the announcement, DCPS director of secondary schools Charles Broughton said, “Jeremy will bring knowledge and enthusiasm along with his extensive expertise in working with ‘at-risk’ students to his new role at ODT.”
