Woman arrested for giving items to jail inmates
A story that ran April 20 in The McDuffie Progress reported Kiffaney Kendrick was charged with providing items to inmates. That story incorrectly reported Jasmine Dawson and Deshia Dunn were the inmates who received those items. That is incorrect. Dawson and Dunn had been arrested on April 9 and charged with disorderly conduct and are not linked to the charges against Kendrick. The McDuffie Progress apologizes for any confusion and makes effort to correct stores immediately when errors of fact are brought to our attention.

A life-long dream came true for Briarwood senior Will Johnson on April 13.
Johnson accepted his appointment to the United States Air Force Academy, located in Colorado Springs, Colorado, for the Class of 2021.
“This means absolutely everything to me,” Johnson said. “It’s a life-long dream come true. I’ve always wanted to a pilot, and while I was looking at colleges, I kept that goal in mind. Going to the Air Force Academy is the best way I can accomplish that goal.”
