    On Friday, April 26, 2019, Camden Military Academy will host the Kershaw County Special Olympics.  Jackson School will send their athletes in grand style.  The 3rd Grade "We are a Fan" Club have been gearing up for this event by making signs and noise makers during their club times this year. Students will line the halls as the athletes marched through on the way to the bus.  All athletes from Kershaw County participating in Special Olympics will meet at Chick-fil-a parking lot and have a police escort through down.  Business people will line the sidewalks and cheer the athletes on as the buses drive by.  The students from Jackson will line the sidewalk and cheer as the buses drive by. All students will receive  ribbons and medals for their participation in the games.  It is going to be a great day for all  involved!
