Kershaw gets $1 million check

KERSHAW – S.C. Sen. Vincent Sheheen (D-27) presented a $1 million check to Kershaw officials Wednesday, July 22, for infrastructure projects at Haile Gold Mine.
The two combined grants were given from the S.C. Rural Infrastructure Authority (RIA), Sheheen said.    
“That is the only place South Carolina can receive funds for help in rural South Carolina,“ he said.
Sheheen said Kershaw deserved the financial assistance, which helps rural communities invest in water, wastewater and storm water improvements.
