Cameron served on the faculty of Northwestern for 35 years and he is well remembered as being sensitive, compassionate and responsive to the needs of his students and friends. Funds in honor of Sheldon Sherman were contributed by family and friends to this endowment at the time of his death in 2004. Sheldon, the husband of Joy Cameron Sherman, was a member of the Northwestern Agriculture judging team when he was a student at Northwestern. This scholarship will be awarded each year to students majoring in math, pre-engineering or agribusiness.
