Around the Lake

Last weekend, Furman and Make-a-Wish South Carolina granted the wish of a seven-year-old girl named Anna Leigh, who is suffering from a blood disorder. Anna’s desire was to become Rapunzel and let down her hair. So she came to the campus and rode a beautiful, white horse to the Bell Tower on the Furman lake, where she met a prince, climbed the stairs and did indeed let down her hair. A big crowd was on hand to watch Anna’s wish come true. (Photo by Jeremy Fleming)
