Often, public servants are willing to sacrifice big paychecks to do the work of the people. What makes the decision easier to choose jobs in public service is the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program (PSLF), which was signed into law by President George W. Bush in 2007. “Its intent is to enable individuals to pursue public-service careers, while successfully managing the financial burdens of student-loan debt,” said 2002 Furman psychology graduate Bryan Boroughs. Boroughs, now vice president and general counsel for Institute for Child Success in Greenville, contributes a guest column in The Greenville News about how the federal move to eliminate PSLF will hurt public servants, and the people they serve.

Boroughs has been with ICS since 2014. He received his Juris Doctor and a Master of Public Policy from Georgetown University.
