Cambridge Gamble

On February 18, 2014, former 2013 Williamsburg County School District Valedictorian Cambridge Gamble was the only freshman to participate in the prestigious Clemson Speech Competition.  The Clemson scholar from Greeleyville, South Carolina won Clemson University's oldest and most esteemed undergraduate speech competition, "The Clemson Cup".  

For the past 20 years, this competition has provided a format for bringing student representatives of various organizations together to speak on specific issues.  This year's topic was Clemson: Its History and Its Legacy. 

As the winner of this competition, Gamble receives a monetary award and the honor to speak at the University's May graduation ceremony on May 9, 2014. "Competing and winning as a freshman is an unbelievable honor and privilege," said Gamble. "I am simply humbled by the experience. I thank my parents, Rev. Norman and La-Diné Williams Gamble and my family; my New Ebenezer Baptist Church family, Williamsburg County School District extended family; and my new Clemson Tiger family members for all of their guidance, encouragement and support."

Since arriving at Clemson, Gamble has been active in various student organizations such as They Call Me Mister Program, Freshman Council, Orientation Ambassador, and Co-Chair of Public Relations for the Minority Recruitment Team to name a few.  In addition, this fall he will serve as a Resident Assistant.  Because of his academic achievement and student involvement while at Clemson, Gamble will be initiated into the international honor society Delta Alpha Pi.
