A year and a half after Camden High School (CHS) inducted its first honorees into its Hall of Fame, the school added six more names to the list Thursday night: Patrick Davis, Camden Mayor Alfred Mae Drakeford, Dr. Paul T. Joseph Sr., Dr. Janet Marshall, Thomas E. “Daddy Mac” McLester and Austin M. Sheheen Jr. CHS Principal Dan Matthews said Thursday’s ceremony celebrated the inductees’ “true commitment to excellence.” “Their lives have been a model of how to give back to the community,” Matthews said. Scott Rankin, who with Rick Todd, headed the effort to create the CHS Hall of Fame, introduced the evening’s first honoree, musician and songwriter Patrick Davis, who graduated in 1995.
