Although classes started back in January, Central Carolina Technical College’s (CCTC) new Kershaw County campus celebrated its grand opening on Feb. 8. Around 150 people, including many VIPs, crowded into a portion of new space devoted to the Kershaw County Economic Development Office for some welcoming and inspirational words. That ceremony ended with the surprise announcement, complete with a certificate noting it, that the late Fred R. Sheheen’s name would somehow be incorporated into CCTC at Kershaw County in the near future.
