A freshman, Camacho is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Early and Special Education.

Of the 282 students recognized by the university, Camacho received the highest honors for garnering a 4.0 GPA.

Camacho’s grandmother, Winnifrida, said she never doubted her granddaughter who, she added, works very hard to achieve academic honors.

“She spends most of her time studying,” the grandmother said. “She makes sure that her homework is done on time. We are very proud of her.”

Camacho graduated from high school in June 2019, then she started her college career at BSU the following school year.

While still in high school, Camacho was a member of the Ali’is dance group. “Yet she managed to maintain her good grades,” her grandmother said.

“Once she gets her college degree, I am sure she will come back to the CNMI and help our people in the field of education — I know she will be a great teacher,” her grandmother said.

Camacho came from a family of educators. Her other grandmother, Carmen B. Pangelinan, used to be a teacher at Chalan Kanoa Elementary School now known as William S. Reyes Elementary School. Her aunt, Bobbie P. Lee used to teach at WSR, Sister Remedios Early Childhood Development Center, and Mount Carmel School. Her grandfather, Deacon Rosiky Camacho is still teaching at MCS.
