Man with autism brought to tears after being named Employee of the Year

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – A manager at a local restaurant put together the surprise of a lifetime for a very special employee.

Camron Coleman, lovingly known as “Killa Cam,” is on the autism spectrum and is very high functioning.

He comes to work at Cook Out on Campbell Lane every day with a smile on his face, telling everyone how much he loves them and loves his job.

Tuesday, he walked nearly three miles to work in the rain on the hottest day so far this year.

“I didn’t like walking in the rain because I was still getting soaking wet even though I had an umbrella, and it was so hot and I was sweating,” Cameron Coleman said.

But, that won’t be happening again.

Killa Cam was given thousands of dollar’s worth of gifts, one being a new bicycle.

“I decided to do this for Cameron because he deserved it, has always deserved it instead of taking the negative approach to adversity, situations and grief,” said Will Reynolds, Cook Out General Manager.

But the gift Cameron loved the most was winning Cook Out employee of the year.

Camron said, “I feel like a million bucks!”
