Community, CHS sports loses a friend in John Speaks
Placeholder Image
As a three-sport athlete --- and a state champion in each --- in the late 1950s at Camden High, the 6-foot-4 John Speaks stood above the crowd. Long after his Bulldog playing days were over, he continued to cast a long, loving shadow over his community and his alma mater. On Sunday, at the age of 70, John Speaks passed away at his Camden home, leaving a legacy like few others in the world of Kershaw County sports and business.
