The ALPHA Center celebrated its success with the Kershaw County Youth Arbitration Program with a luncheon Friday. Fifth Circuit Solicitor Dan Johnson attended and presented with an award in honor of his support and funding of the program which began in February 2012. The arbitration program’s purpose is to divert youths charged with committing a non-violent crime for the first time from the judicial system.
