The S.C. Elks Association (SCEA) presented its 2016 Enrique “Kiki” Camarena award to Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews at its recent South Carolina Winter conference in Myrtle Beach. The Benevolent & Protective Order of Elks established the award to recognize and honor law enforcement officers who have made a significant contribution in the field of drug abuse prevention and who personify Agent Camarena’s belief “one person can make a difference.” “Sheriff Matthews’ remarkable career and dedication to our country and state made him a unanimous choice for the Camarena award,” SCEA Drug Awareness Program Chairman Gerry Kirkland said.
