Council Profiles

Mayor Joyce S. Cameron

Joyce S. Cameron has been Mayor of the City of Trotwood, Ohio since March 2010. She is currently President and CEO of Green Star Trucking, and Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer of HighRise Services After-School Tutoring Program.

Joyce has been a resident of Trotwood, Ohio for 22 years. She and her husband James own their home and have their trucking company business located in that city. A Dayton native and graduate of Roosevelt High School, Joyce continued her education at Sinclair Community College and the NCR School of Business.

Joyce has dedicated herself to working hard to represent the citizens of Trotwood. She has committed herself to public service since she was first elected to city council in 2000. She brings to her current office of mayor 12 years of political experience and 30 years of business expertise. Besides being the President and CEO of a successful trucking business, Green Star Trucking, Joyce was employed by the NCR Corporation for over 20 years as an International Systems Software consultant and traveled extensively in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, North America and South America.

In the year 2000, Joyce’s lifelong dedication to education for at-risk youth led her to co-found HighRise Services, an after-school tutoring and cultural program for disadvantaged children. As part of her ongoing commitment to all members of the community, she was instrumental in establishing a GED preparatory program in 2009, which is located at the HighRise facility and has graduated 33 adult-learners to-date.

Mayor Cameron currently serves in the following positions:
  • Board Member: Montgomery County Family and Children First Council
  • Youth Advisor: Trotwood-Madison Historical Society
  • Fellow: National League of Cities Triple Diamond Leadership Program
  • Member: National Black Caucus of Local Elected Officials

In July 2012, Joyce was asked by the Trotwood Police chief to accompany him and some of his officers to the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) conference in Phoenix. CALEA is a worldwide credentialing authority for law enforcement agencies, dedicated to the delivery of public safety services. Mayor Cameron is the first city mayor to have been invited to a CALEA conference and to participate in the accreditation process. What better legacy to bring back from this conference to the citizens of her city, especially since public safety and governmental efficiency are hallmarks of her administration.

Joyce has stated that her priorities for a balanced life are: God, family, and community.  She looks forward to the challenges that are presented to her and the citizens of her community. Her new initiative, One Trotwood, embraces all citizens in an effort to solve problems and get things done together. This new program involves: assessing the community; connecting people and institutions; creating programs to address community needs; mobilizing the community; and connecting with other communities for shared goals. As a committed steward of the taxpayers’ dollars, she is active in implementing the short and long-term objectives of the 2013-18 Trotwood Strategic Plan, which features clear goals for enhancing Trotwood’s economic vitality.

Her most recent endeavor involves participating in a National League of Cities Academy to reduce childhood hunger through an afterschool and summer meal program known as CHAMPS (Cities Combating Hunger through Afterschool and Summer Meal Programs), which resulted in the City receiving a $55,000 grant to implement the program in Trotwood.

In closing, Joyce’s ‘personal path’ involves following these maxims:
  • Celebrate Joint Achievements
  • Accept The Challenges
  • Embrace The Now
  • Create Our Future
