A soaking rain didn’t deter at least 100 people from crowding into the Camden Fire Department at Camden City Hall on Oct. 26 to honor retired long-time educator Aaron Hough with the dedication of a Leader’s Legacy bench. The actual bench is now installed at Monument Square near the site of the new, nearly completed Camden Elementary School. City Manager Mel Pearson started things off by not only welcoming those in attendance, but recounting a story that exemplified why Pearson said it has been a pleasure to know Hough for about 30 years.
