While discussing the various rumors as to the cost involved and how the new scoreboard at Zemp Stadium will be paid for (see July 25 edition of the Chronicle-Independent), Camden High School principal Dan Matthews made it a point to say that no public funds earmarked for the oldest high school football stadium still in use in the Palmetto State will go toward toward the scoreboard. The public funds are part of the Phase II of the Kershaw County School District’s multi-million dollar Capital Improvements Projects school bond referendum which was passed by voters in Kershaw County as part of last November’s election. In a front page story which appeared in the Chronicle-Independent on Tuesday, Nov. 1, 2016, Zemp Stadium was slated to receive $1,156,500 from the $1.987 million renovations/additions allotted to the county’s three high school stadiums.
