Ray City - A South Georgia family gets national recognition for helping others.

The National Council of Negro Women selected the Camon Family of Ray City as one of their "Most Extraordinary Families." Only two other families received the honor out of more than 200 entries.

The Camons have a long tradition of community service, from working with troubled teens to taking care of the elderly, tutoring students, donating blood, and much more.

"We had always done those things because that's what Mom and Dad taught us," said Carl Camon. "They always helped others growing up and passed those genes on to us."

The Camon Family traveled to Washington D.C. earlier this month to accept the award.
