BEFORE HE RETIRED, Camden High School named its tennis courts after Roger Smoak as part of an April 28 ceremony.
Glady Smoak remembers the night as if it were yesterday.It was a long unsettling evening in the Lowcountry in 2007, as her husband, Camden High tennis coach Roger Smoak, was preparing to undergo brain surgery at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston the following morning. Their children, Pamela and Stephen, were anxious about the procedure and could not sleep so they left their respective hotel rooms to get something to eat. Glady was also unable to sleep.
