Has anybody noticed any of the new schools being built around Kershaw County?

We would urge anyone who hasn’t seen them to do a drive-by. They really are looking good.

We appreciate the way the Kershaw County School District went the extra mile to include the public in the entire process, from funding to design. Take a look at the new Camden Elementary School on Laurens Street and one can see the architects went to great lengths to incorporate many of the ideas generated to make the school fit in with the character of the neighborhood.

But while we feel it’s important to give kudos to KCDS for a good job in putting together these projects and we appreciate the careful eye the district continues to keep on them, we believe it’s even more important to commend those who voted in favor of the 2016 school bond referendum.

You see, the decision to generate those bonds represents a powerful long-range vision and the confidence to invest in our future. We are confident these investments in ourselves will reap great benefits for many years to come.

These projects coming up out of the ground are not only visible, tangible results of that investment, they are truly the fruit borne of those seeds confidently sown.
