Kenneth M. McCarthy Scholarship

A scholarship fund was established by the Camden County Sheriff's Office in memory of Kenneth M. McCarthy. A lifelong resident of Camden County, Mr. McCarthy was born on December 12, 1922. He attended the Citadel and was a graduate of Gerogia Military College in Milledgeville as well as the University of Georgia (BBA 1949). By creating this fund, the Camden County Sheriff's Department honors Mr. McCarthy's advocacy of the law enforcement profession as well as his many contributions to the Camden County community.
