Carrie Silver, director of Furman University’s Bridges to a Brighter Future, is featured on UpstateBizSC’s “Nonprofit Minute.” In a three-minute video, Silver explains the award-winning college access and success program for Greenville County, South Carolina, high school and college students. Designed for students whose potential outdistances their circumstances, the Bridges program exposes students to college life, and addresses the personal, social and cultural barriers that often prevent low-income and first-generation students from achieving college graduation.
