About 100 people braved a sunny but chilly morning Friday to help Central Carolina Technical College (CCTC) break ground on a 40,000-square-foot expansion of its I-20 Exit 98 campus in Camden. Ahead of the groundbreaking, State Sen. Vincent Sheheen, State Rep. Laurie Slade Funderburk and Kershaw County Council Chairman Julian Burns presented CCTC President Dr. Tim Hardee with a “check” for $1.5 million, representing the second half of $3 million in state funds allocated to the expansion project. Kershaw County and Camden City councils previously committed a total of $7 million to the project.
