Kershaw County Veterans Affairs Officer Barbara Ray (center) was selected as The 2017 Veterans Affairs Officer of the Year by The South Carolina Association of Veterans Affairs Officers. This prestigious state award recognizes one county veterans affairs officer each year who has made outstanding contributions to the veterans in the state of South Carolina and performed their duties to the highest professional manner.

Kershaw County Council publicly recognized and thanked Ray for her outstanding achievement during its April 11 meeting. For almost 27 years, Ray has assisted the nearly 6,000 veterans and their dependents in the preparation and submission of claims through The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and The Board of Veterans Appeals. In 2015, her office facilitated more than $74 million in benefits to Kershaw County veterans. Joining her (from left) are Councilmen Dennis Arledge and Al Bozard; Holly Kelly; Council Chairman Julian Burns; and councilmen Jimmy Jones and Tom Gardner,
