Bill Byars spent his last day as the director of the S.C. Department of Corrections (SCDC) Monday. It marked the third time Byars, who lives in Kershaw County just north of Camden, has retired from some type of public or government service. His wife, Camille, said that even though “work is his lifeblood” and that he has already received three job offers since announcing his retirement, she’s told her husband not to consider any of them until after the first of the new year.
