      Airport High School Charity Drive to benefit dozens of Camp Kemo campers

      Vicki Stilwell with Lexington School District Two says student government officers of Airport High School presented the directors of Camp Kemo with a check for $43,000 Thursday morning.

      COLUMBIA (WACH) - Dozens of children will benefit from the fundraising efforts of a Midlands high school.

      Vicki Stilwell with Lexington County School District Two says student government officers of Airport High School presented the directors of Camp Kemo with a check for $43,000 Thursday morning.

      The donation is a result of the school's annual Charity Drive week, where students participate in a variety of activities to raise money for a summer camp for kids with cancer. It will allow 86 campers to attend Camp Kemo this year.

      "This is the most money the students of Airport have ever raised in the almost 20 years the student body has been raising money for charity," said Stilwell.
