John Camero, Headmaster, Bible Teacher

Cut Mr. Camero, and he bleeds Spring Vale blue and white.  He attended Spring Vale as a student, working as a student to help pay his way.  If you drive through campus you are very likely to be stopped by Mr. Camero as he monitors our campus like an eagle. That is because SVCS is like a child to him.  He longs to serve the Lord with his life.
