And Justice for All

Dr. Aaron Simmons taught the class, "Justice," with the Bridges students.

Furman’s Bridges to a Brighter Future is a college access and academic enrichment program for Greenville County high school students who display great academic potential but often must overcome challenging circumstances at home. As part of their work on campus this summer, the students took a course entitled “Justice” with Furman professor Aaron Simmons.  As part of the course, the students wrote an essay about the importance of working together, which was published as an op-ed in The Greenville News.
