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.”

Allyssa D., Class of 2023

College to me means: Breaking a family curse and showing my younger siblings, cousins and friends that there’s more to life than just where you are now.

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.”
