Year in Review - Part 1 of 3
A year of triumphs, tragedies and an equestrian good-bye
Marin duPont Scott Web
THE LATE Marion duPont Scott will have the Colonial Cup race run in her memory each spring as part of the Carolina Cup card after the Carolina Cup Racing Association voted to put an end to the Camden fall classic race meet after 47 years.
January 2017 got off to an inauspicious start with two fatal accidents reported over the New Year’s holiday weekend, including the Jan. 1 death of Matthew Boland, son of Camden Military Academy Headmaster Eric Boland. His would be one of 19 traffic-related deaths in 2017, tying the number of similar fatalities in 2016. In March, Boland joined Kershaw County Coroner David West and Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews in announcing a program where students from the Applied Technology Education Campus built white crosses to be placed at traffic fatality locations across the county, in many cases sporting the names and date of death of the victim.
