Photographs by Bridges to a Brighter Future Students on Display Throughout August
GREENVILLE, S.C.—Photographs by students from Furman University’s Bridges to a Brighter Future program are on display at Café @ Williams Hardware in Travelers Rest during the entire month of August.
The Bridges to a Brighter Future photo
exhibit is on display through August.
The photographs are for sale and all proceeds will be used to support Furman’s Bridges to a Brighter Future, a comprehensive college access and pre-college academic enrichment program for Greenville County high school students whose families are living below the poverty level. The funds will help cover the cost of school supplies, college admissions fees, testing, graduation fees and other student-related expenses.
Priced between $40 and $60 each, the photographs are matted and framed and depict nature, architecture, symbols and people.
The Bridges program includes a four-week summer residential session on the Furman campus where students may choose to attend one of seven elective classes in addition to five core classes— math, English, social studies, science, and college planning. The photographs on display come from a class taught by Kelly Godwin of Sugah Photography.
Students participating in the eight-year Bridges program have been identified as having academic potential, but are living in difficult and challenging circumstances. The program seeks to break the cycle of poverty and low educational achievement by equipping students with the tools and support needed to graduate from high school, enroll in post-secondary education, and graduate with a post-secondary degree.
