The day before classes started in Kershaw County, a number of teens stopped by the Jackson Teen Center (JTC) across from Camden High School (CHS) to get more prepared school. They weren’t coming to pick up supplies, but to get something that would make them feel a little better about themselves, a little more special. Thanks to a partnership with the Midlands Fatherhood Coalition, Another Level Barber Shop of Camden and Salon B&S of Columbia, male students got new haircuts and female students got new hairdos and their nails done.
