The Bridges of Greenville County

U.S. Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina spoke recently to a class of Bridges students on campus.

Furman’s Bridges to a Brighter Future is a college access and academic enrichment program for Greenville County high school students who have great academic potential but often face difficult and challenging circumstances at home. Since the program began in 1996, 99 percent of those students have graduated from high school and 87 percent have gone to attend college or join the military.  The Greenville News published a front page article about the success of the Bridges program as it celebrates its 20th anniversary.
