The Ebola outbreak has affected few Americans so far, but the crisis is epic in western Africa, where thousands have already died from the virus. One Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) deputy is doing what he can to help. Deputy Fred Tiah, a school resource officer (SRO) at Elgin’s Stover Middle School, is a native of Liberia and has organized a fundraising effort to help Liberian children who have lost their parents to Ebola.
