People of Pierce: Cameron Plute

“I kind of grew up (on computers) since I was like eight, nine maybe?” Cameron Plute said. “My family introduced me to computers. I grew up on them, but it was also a choice. It started with video games and then (I) wondered how they worked, and how the computer worked, how it all functioned. I was just curious. And then Google was a thing, so Google made it possible to learn anything. I can type 120 WPM, that’d be a random thing I guess. (I discovered that) in middle school typing class after a couple typing sessions. I was done with the class and then my teacher was like ‘You have eight weeks left. How are you already done?’ It came naturally from all the video games. I was (studying) business at first and then I transferred from business to mechanical engineering because I realized business really wasn’t my forte,” Plute said. “If I had to have a grand vision, I’d say (it’s to) mass produce a specific robot that’s all-purpose and helps people across the world. I couldn’t think of any way that would possibly put as much of a dent in the universe as that. You can’t really sell a product that would make such an impact in the world. But if you can make a thing that could help people worldwide, that’s pretty large scale.”

Co-Editor-in-Chief at The Puyallup Post
My name is Armani Jackson and I have the privilege to return as Co-Editor-in-chief for my second year working on the newspaper. Last year was an emotional roller coaster as I learned how to balance all my responsibilities but now I come back with an even stronger determination to serve the students here at Pierce. In June, I’ll be ecstatic as I walk on stage to accept my degree in Database Management, two certificates, one in Business Analysis and one in software development along with my high school diploma. I’m excited to deepen my relationships with those who I already have come to know, and cultivate new ones with those i have not yet has the pleasure of acquainting. I aspire to one day be a data-driven journalist, combining my two favorite yet oddly separated passions: IT and journalism. Here’s to the trials we’ve faced and the tribulations coming. I’m ready, are you?
