My personal thanks to you and your staff for all the effort put into the coverage of Lomar Clark’s death. He was among the few students over the years I have taught or worked with in JROTC I will remember for the days to come. He was the epitome of a young man that men of all ages could emulate.

Rarely have I been so impressed and moved by such a meaningful public program dependent on the cooperation and competence of high school students.

Saturday, we were privileged to attend a large homegoing for Lomar Clark, planned and executed by Camden High School (CHS) JROTC cadets with their instructors, 1st Sgt. Anthony and Lt. Col. Timothy Webb. Held in the CHS gym, participants included the CHS Gospel Choir, three other choirs, words by Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews, students and instructors, and much more. The American flag Lamor raised at Camden High School every day was presented to his parents. As was said, “Our loss is Heavens gain.”
