Scholar Stories

Cynthia Oliver, Class of 2019

“Legacy paved the pathway for me to go to college, I had teachers, principals, Mr. Brown telling me they were gonna do everything they could to get me scholarships and get me to college and now I am at Furman on a full ride.”

Zharia Anderson, Class of 2020

“I have been here since the 5th grade and I am currently a senior in high school graduating in May with a high school diploma with enough credits to be considered as a sophomore in college.”

Shaniya Kinard, Class of 2018

“As a Legacy Early College Alumni it was an honor to graduate from Legacy because their values they instill in their scholars and how it sets you up to be successful in college and the future. Also, the relationships I built with the faculty and my mentor.”

Jayden Williams, Class of 2020

"My favorite thing about Legacy is the community here. The teachers not only get to know you, but they know you personally!"
