Hundreds of athletes, family members and fans converged on the football field at Camden Military Academy (CMA) on Friday for the annual Kershaw County Special Olympics. The day began with a bus parade from the Kmart shopping center in Camden along DeKalb Street and ending at CMA east of Camden. Friday marked CMA’s 11th year as host of the event and cadets served as support staff, played in the school band or took part in the opening ceremony.
