Cameron Asbury, College Access Specialist
Cameron Asbury serves as a College Access Specialist for the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission’s Division of Student Affairs. In this role, he primarily focuses on entering activity data for the GEAR UP Grant, but he has assisted with a number of projects during his time working for the Commission. Some other projects Cameron has worked on include graphic design and community outreach, mailings for College Application and Exploration Week, and attending college fairs around the state.
An alum of the first West Virginia GEAR UP Grant, Mr. Asbury is grateful to give back to his home state and help future generations of students discover that postsecondary education in West Virginia is attainable. He believes that if he had not been part of GEAR UP in high school, he might not have attended Marshall University and become the first member of his family to graduate from college.
