Spruell was selected Firefighter of the Year at the West Pelzer Department and then nominated for the county award. He was chosen out of five nominees by the Anderson County Fire Chiefs Advisory Board. The award caught Spruell by surprise when his name was called at the dinner. Spruell has thirty nine years with the West Pelzer department. (Photo by David Rogers)
