A day for service

Lance Robinson marched through Camden Feb. 11 on his way to Columbia as part of his Brother to Brother Day March across America. While in Camden, Robinson was presented a plaque by Camden Mayor Jeffrey Graham. He, in turn, presented pins to Camden police and fire chiefs Joe Floyd and John Bowers, respectively.

The face(s) of Kershaw County public education

While sorting through the papers of a deceased friend of mine who wished them given to the South Caroliniana Library, I came across a 1970-71 annual of the Kershaw County Vocational Center. I soon visited Howard Branham, director of the Camden Archives and Museum, to see if they had a copy in their collection. They did not but in a few minutes Howard made a copy and added it to their collection.

Knights Hill community recognized for academic achievements

For 11 of the 18 years between 1952 and 1970, the first- or second-ranked students at Jackson High School came from the Knights Hill Community, and this is not counting other students ranked among the top five in the class. This is unique and historic, having this many top-ranked students from one community. Two additional years have now been added, 1958 and 1970. Those recognized are as follows:
