Cameryn Norris is a 19-year-old Sophomore studying Studio Art and Art History at James Madison University (JMU) in Harrisonburg, Virginia. She is originally from Richmond, Virginia, but now lives in Lynchburg, Virginia, with her family when she is not at JMU.

Cameryn is involved with several organizations at JMU. She participated in Make Your Mark on Madison, a leadership program, in Fall 2019. In Make Your Mark on Madison, Cameryn was apart of a leadership council with nine other students and two leadership councilors. She participated in discussions and activities that further grew her leadership skills.

Cameryn has been an intern at JMU X-Labs since Fall 2019. JMU X-Labs is an on-campus resource where students can utilize technology such as a laser cutter, vinyl cutter, 3-D printing, virtual reality, and more. There, Cameryn helps facilitate Open Lab and helps students work on their own projects. She also teaches pop-up classes, helps with social media and marketing, and works on the JMU X-Labs podcast.

Most recently, Cameryn served as a First-Year Orientation Guide on the 2020 JMU Orientation Team. She helped acclimate a group of 15 First-Year students to James Madison University's campus. Cameryn will continue to mentor these students throughout the 2020-2021 academic school year.

Cameryn will also be initiated into James Madison University's Kappa Pi chapter during Fall 2020. Kappa Pi is an International Art Honor Society focused on philanthropy, community engagement, and professional development.

Cameryn hopes to graduate in May 2023 and attend graduate school, also at James Madison University, and become a double duke.


Cameryn and her fellow JMU X-Labs Interns won the All Together One Award from James Madison University's Omicron Delta Kappa chapter in May 2020.

In April 2020, she received the Martha Curt Endowed Scholarship from James Madison University's School of Art, Design, and Art History for her exceptional work in Foundation art classes.

In April 2019, Cameryn received the Madison Award for Academic Excellence and the Lisanby Award from James Madison University's School of Art, Design, and Art History.

She won a National Scholastic Art and Writing Awards Gold Medal and American Visions Award in June 2019.
