Congratulations to Paul Napper, executive director of The ALPHA Center, feted on today's front page as the 2015 recipient of the Kershaw County Sheriff's Foundation's Leonard Price Friend of Law Enforcement Award. As his nominators, Kershaw County School District Superintendent Dr. Frank Morgan and ALPHA Center Prevention Director Tina Griggs said in their nomination letters, we know of no one more deserving of such recognition.
It was with a good deal of sympathy that I read the column written by the young lady who bemoaned the lack of job opportunities for youth. We've all been there. My sympathy evaporated, however, when I read the line "adults…. must give us a chance to learn responsibility and gain necessary experience through job opportunities." (Emphasis mine.)
KershawHealth was envisioned and built by local philanthropy. It has been sustained for more than a century by the commitment of a community dedicated to caring for its own. And, even as it has grown, decade after decade, it has never lost that sense of purpose that comes from neighbors caring for neighbors. Now, we have joined with our neighbors to take another step on that journey.
