The county is mourning the loss of beloved Kershaw County School District (KCSD) special education educator and district director Deborah “Debi” Hardin Davis who passed away Tuesday after a year and half battle with cancer. Administrators said Davis gave 24 years of hard work to the district where she held positions such as learning disabilities resource teacher, educable mentally disabled self-contained teacher, coordinator for special services and, ultimately, director of special needs. She held several other positions within the district as well.
