Editorial: Hootie grant

We have often used this space to show our support or otherwise congratulate those in our community doing everything they can to contribute to the well-being of our young people. We do so again today as we congratulate Brian Mayes of the Jackson Teen Center and Paul Napper of The ALPHA Center on obtaining an $8,000 grant from the Hootie & The Blowfish Foundation. $8,000 is not a lot of money, but what’s being done with it will mean so much. It’s, essentially, seed money for a year-long project to produce at least one, if not two, music CDs using the energy and talent of up to 70 young people from right here in Kershaw County.
