Scott Cameron

English Faculty Member


Scott Cameron received a Bachelor of Arts in English from Brigham Young University, followed by a master’s degree and a doctorate in English from Boston University. His scholarly interests include American literature, poetry, and environmentalism. He has published poetry in a variety of works including the anthology Fire in the Pasture and an upcoming collection Blossom as the Cliffrose.

A good day for Scott includes running, biking, or swimming. A really good day includes a trail run along a river, a long hike with family and friends, or the attempt to keep up with his oldest son while mountain biking. He is grateful for spring and the ability to look for wildflowers again. 

Scott and his wife, Hilary, have five children who also enjoy, or at least put up with, both poetry and hiking.

Spiritual Preparation

Please respond to the question below on the devotional discussion board:

In preparation for the April 2020 general conference, President Nelson asked us to consider carefully how we hear the voice of the Lord. Please share your experiences about how you best hear Him. Is your experience connected to a specific time or day or particular place? Do you hear Him while engaging in particular activities? I realize that these may be sacred and possibly very personal experiences, so please share your experience in a way you feel is appropriate.
