Glenn Kennedy II will soon come to work just down the street from where he graduated high school.
But it was a long journey to get there.
Kennedy, who retired last July as garrison commander at Fort Gordon, was approved Tuesday by Columbia County commission members as the county’s new deputy administrator.
“This is great,” said Kennedy, who is scheduled to start Feb. 1. “I’ve spent the last 25 years of my life serving my country, and now I can come back to where it all started.”
