We would like to offer our hearty congratulations and deepest thanks to North Central High School (NCHS) Principal David Branham, who was recently named Principal of the Year by the Kershaw County School District.
First, we would like to give a tip of the hat to the organizers of the first-ever Irish Festival in Camden. A fundraiser for the Montessori School of Camden, the event showcased Camden in a unique, family fun-filled way and drew quite a crowd. We see quite a few events coming in the next few months, both old favorites and new endeavors and we like what we see.

We have enjoyed the response to C-I Senior Writer Martin Cahn's recent feature on Rengy Marshall and the 832 Broad Street Building, known to everyone as the Coca Cola Bottling Plant, which she bought and renovated a couple of years ago.

Camden and Kershaw County have long been known for all things equestrian. From the hunt to the Cup, from trail riding to barrel racing, this place is horse-crazy -- has been for a long time -- and we believe that's a good thing.
Part of what makes the difference between a good community and a great one is the willingness of those who live there to step up and contribute their time, talent and resources to make that community a better place to live. People do this in a variety of ways and means. Readers will see two examples in today's C-I.
We would like to offer our hearty congratulations to Amy Kinard, who was recently named executive director of the Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce. While she has been serving as interim director since August 2016, we are very glad she will continue in the position permanently.
