Two influential gentlemen were presented with awards during Monday evening’s celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day at Camden First United Methodist Church. The program was organized by the Camden-Kershaw County Branch of the NAACP. The first award, created to recognize those who have carried on King’s legacy, was given to Andy James for his continued service to the Kershaw County community. “He really was like a father figure to me,” said Sammie Tucker Jr., who is vice chairman of Kershaw County Council.
