Relay for Life

Jerry E. Halmon, Staff Reporter

In their search for a Service Learning Project for this year, the Student Government Association (SGA) of Denmark Technical College decided on a project that had touched many of their lives. “We all talked about something that has affected all of our families and that was cancer,” Avis Gathers, SGA advisor said.

So, this year, the Denmark Technical College (SGA) decided to sponsor their very first Relay for Life event, on April 15th with the proceeds going to the American Cancer Society. “I think we did very well,” Gathers said, adding, "the SGA’s plans are to make this and on-going service learning project."

Kathryn Wall

Author of Bay Tanner Mysteries, Kathryn Wall, speaks as well as she writes. “I kill people for fun and profit,” she quipped at the beginning of her presentation to the Friday Afternoon Book Club at the Bamberg County Library. Of course she was referring to her writing of mysteries, not of any ties to the mob.

Kathy wrote her first story at the age of six, then decided to take a few decades off. She grew up in a small town in northeastern Ohio and attended college in both Ohio and Pennsylvania. For twenty-five years she practiced her profession as an accountant in both public and private practice. But even then, at her “quiet years,” she wrote “anything and everything, essays, whatever,” but strictly for the love of the task.

113th Founder’s Day

“She let her life speak,” Dr. Janet Smith Dickerson said of the life’s work of Voorhees College founder Elizabeth Evelyn Wright Menefe.

Dickerson, a 1961 graduate of Voorhees College and presently Vice President for Student Life at Princeton University, speaking at the college’s 113th Founder’s Day, admonished the large audience of students, faculty and guest in the Leonard E. Dawson Health and Human Resources Center to “let your life speak.”

“There will be skeptics in your life that will tell you that you can’t do something, let them see that you can,” Dickerson said. In answering the question, how will your life speak? The Denmark native told the group that each one of them should, “look at what you love to do, are good at, and use the skills and talents that you have been given to make a life out of it.”

Denmark Dentistry announces the opening of the office of Earl B. Hartzog, DMD, PA., in the location of the late Dr. S. B. Baker, Jr. offices, at 174 Beech Avenue in Denmark.

According to Dr. Hartzog, only the name of the practice has changed with the quality of service remaining the same, with the entire staff of Dr. Baker staying on board. Stephanie Brandt was recently hired as a dental hygienist.

The office accepts most insurance and offers a Care Credit billing option of 12 months at 0 percent interest for high cost procedures and treatment plans to help make dental care more affordable.
