Many children showed up to meet their super heroes at Walgreens

Walgreen’s Photo Section Manager and District Special Events Coordinator Omar Jeter was very enthusiastic when he addressed a big crowd of both parents and children Saturday morning.

“We’ve done things like this before, but this is the biggest event we have ever had,” he said as the crowd waited to see their personal heroes. He added that the event’s success wouldn’t have been possible without the people who attended the event. Iron man, Captain America, and the Mighty Thor masks were given to three of the gathered youths as a result of a drawing. Beau High won the Captain America mask, Luca Kreighbaum won the Iron Man Mask, and a girl that wishes to remain unnamed was awarded the Lady Thor mask.

Democrat Andy Strickland and Republican Marshall Morehead, the two candidates for position of Colleton County Sheriff in November, also addressed the crowd. “You can be a hero every single day, you can do things like washing the dishes and cleaning up the house. Every day, you can be a super hero in your own way.” Morehead said. Strickland also gave his thoughts on heroism. “Growing up, I always wanted to be a super hero.” He added that everyone can be a super hero in by doing the right things in life.
