No flags flew in front of Camden High School (CHS) on Wednesday. The gesture served as a stark reminder Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) Cadet Capt. Lomar Clark hadn’t raised them that morning. Clark, a junior who died in a single-vehicle accident while driving to school Friday, had raised the American flag in front of the school every morning during all three of his school years at CHS. JROTC 1st Sgt. Connell Anthony, the school’s assistant JROTC commander, said Lomar joined the team as soon as he arrived at CHS and almost immediately volunteered to raise the flag each morning.
