Programs funded by a grant obtained by Kershaw County following the 2007 gang-related shooting death of a high school student now employ 41 full- and part-time residents. It has helped reduce recidivism at the Kershaw County School District’s (KCSD) Continuous Learning Center (CLC), provided “targeted” counseling to 2,900 students and created a positive behavioral program that will be expanded to all middle schools. The county applied for the $5.7 million Safe Schools/Healthy Students (SS/HS) grant, with the KCSD acting as its administrator, after Camden High School student Michael Smith died in a gang-related shooting in December 2007.
