KershawHealth's nine-member board of trustees is appointed for six-year terms by the Kershaw County Council. These trustees, who come from throughout Kershaw County, represent a broad range of expertise. Because healthcare is such a complicated and highly-regulated business, serving on the board demands a great deal of work and a significant time commitment. We are deeply grateful for those who, during the last 100 years, have given so generously of their time and talents. Their leadership and support have been critical to the growth and quality of healthcare in Kershaw County.

Please permit me to share my thoughts with your readers about Johnny "Mr. Camden" Deal. He was a most deserving recipient of the Jake Watson Award. That award holds a special meaning to me. Jake Watson's grandmother and my paternal great-grandfather were siblings from Greenwood. Jake was a true Camden icon, as is Johnny. Equal only to my own is Johnny's love for our community. Never is he seen without that big, friendly grin. We need more people like him. Johnny is the "Real Deal."
