A “profound” accomplishment

Furman alum Jason Terrell ’12 is the co-founder of Profound Gentlemen, an organization that seeks to “build a community of male educators of color who provide a profound additional impact through social-emotional learning and cultivating a cradle to career pipeline for boys of color.” As a result of his work with the organization, he and co-founder Mario Jovan Shaw have been named to Forbes’ 2017 “30-Under-30,” a list that features the “leading young change-makers and innovators in the U.S.”

Terrell graduated from Furman in 2012 with a B.A. degree in political science and philosophy.  Chris Drose, a 2016 graduate who majored in economics and English, was named to the “30-Under-30” list last year.
