  Randolph Randy Camp was born on March 12, 1961 in rural Spotsylvania County, Virginia. Randy attended both John J. Wright Elementary School and Robert E. Lee Elementary School during his early years. In reflection, Randy is quoted in saying that seeing the racial tension between Blacks and Whites at an early age, most likely, was certainly one of the reasons why he became so detail-oriented, thus making him the imaginative, prolific writer he is today. Because at an early age, he’d learned to study the body langauge, especially facial expressions of the Whites who would give a certain look and wouldn’t say a word when a Black person would enter a store , or perhaps, come near them. At first, the John J. Wright School was an all-Black school and Robert E. Lee Elementary had all White students. When the laws changed to mix the schools, Randy is quoted in saying that he absolutely noticed the very distinctive facial expressions and body language of those who didn’t initially agree with those laws. Randy attended John J. Wright Middle School through 6th and 7th grade, and Spotsylvania Jr. High through 8th and 9th grade. During Randy Camp’s 1974-1975  8th Grade,  he achieved a great accomplishment and received a PERFECT ATTENDANCE AWARD for attending 180 straight days of school. Randy attended Spotsylvania Senior High School and graduated as an HONOR STUDENT with a GPA of 3.13 in June 1979. Some of Randy’s high school classes include SPEECH-DRAMA, ALGEBRA, SOCIALOGY, GENERAL BUSINESS and HORTICULTURE. Another one of  Randy’s proud accomplishments during his early years came on June  5, 1979, just two weeks before his high school graduation, when the local newspaper, The Fredericksburg Free-Lance Star, published Randy’s ‘LETTER TO THE EDITOR’ article entitled ‘Put Something Back, Graduates Urge.’ After graduating high school, Randy joined the US Air Force. While in the US Air Force, Randy was awarded several ribbons and medals for his achievements and accomplishments, such as the Air Force Good Conduct Medal, Air Force Training Ribbon, Air Force Longevity Service Ribbon, the Air Force Overseas Short Tour Ribbon and the Air Force Achievement Medal. *(see Erie Community College-ECC below)  While stationed at Kadena Air Force Base on Okinawa Japan during 1980 and 1981, Randy made good use of his free time by attending night courses at the Overseas Division of University of Maryland University College. Randy’s undergraduate studies included WRITING, SOCIALOGY, NUTRITION and HUMAN GENETICS. Randy’s college GPA was 3.667
