Santa comes early



Santa arrived at North Aiken Elementary School by fire truck just after lunch to deliver gifts from SmithKline Beecham, which had just renewed its partnership as a sponsor to help benefit the pupils at North Aiken and at Pinecrest Annex.

T'Eraa Corley, 6, a first-grader at North Aiken, looks surprised as she opens her gift delivered by Santa. The pupils at both schools made ornaments for the company's cafeteria Christmas tree.
