In what is likely to become a new record -- at least in Kershaw County -- the Kershaw County School District (KCSD) held three groundbreakings for new elementary schools in the space of three hours Monday. At 9 a.m., 10 a.m. and 11 a.m., the district held groundbreaking ceremonies for replacement facilities for Camden, Lugoff and Wateree elementary schools, respectively. Each will cost approximately $21 million to build and are part of a larger, $129 million voter-approved series of construction and improvement projects for the district.
