A Camden resident who wants to preserve Zemp Stadium spoke before the Kershaw County Board of School Trustees during its meeting Tuesday night. Scott Jordan, who graduated from Camden High School in 1981, expressed his shared concerns about the possible demolition of the long-standing structure after the new stadium is built in a nearly 15-minute written statement. “We respectfully request that the Kershaw County school board vote to amend the Phase 2 facilities referendum instead of replacing the current facility, we ask that the referendum instead require the renovation of Zemp Stadium and maintaining Zemp Stadium as the home field for Camden High School football and other varsity sports, ” said Jordan.
