In 2016, Cameron Conlon of St Stithians Boys’ College tragically passed away as he celebrated the end of school before his final matric exams began.
In his memory, the Cameron Conlon Foundation was launched in May at the Indaba Hotel.
An avid and talented performer, the foundation honours Conlon’s life by empowering talented individuals in the arts through education, showcasing their talent and supporting artistic endeavours. The evening saw a number of young artists and performers show off their skills.
