Stone honored with Wilkins Award

Pickens County Sheriff C. David Stone was given the 2012 Billy Wilkins Award for Excellence in Law Enforcement last week. Stone, who is in his final two months as sheriff after a 44-year service, received the award in a ceremony at the Pickens County Courthouse.

“It is a pleasure for me to stand before you all and say I’ve enjoyed law enforcement for 44 years and I hope Pickens County goes forward,” Stone said. “That’s what it’s all about — we’ve got to take Pickens County onward.”
