By HALEY ATKINSON C-I (Camden, S.C.) Localife editor Friday was an important day for more than 200 athletes from 20 classes in schools across the Kershaw County School District (KCSD) as participants and spectators gathered at Camden Military Academy (CMA) to celebrate the Kershaw County Special Olympics (KCSO). Opening ceremonies kicked off at 9 a.m. and saw CMA cadets and band members marching onto the field in two lines to announce and welcome the athletes and their families. Waving school banners and flags, smiling and cheering for themselves and each other, the athletes entered the ceremony in a group "march on."
