Elizabeth Davis | Furman University | President

"With the County and City of Greenville going through comprehensive planning processes in 2019, I’m looking forward to a robust and transparent process with a lot of citizen engagement that will make our community an even greater place to live. A stronger county will in turn provide more opportunities for our students through research, internships, continued education and employment to give back to Greenville in many substantial and meaningful ways that strengthen the relationship between Furman and our community."
