Jameson C. Broggi, Esq. is Steamboat Institute’s 2021-22 Courage in Education Award winner. For eight years, Jameson worked tirelessly to get the South Carolina state legislature to pass the Reinforcing College Education on America’s Constitutional Heritage (REACH) Act. Signed by Governor Henry McMaster on April 28, 2021, the SC REACH ACT requires all South Carolina college students to take a three-credit-hour class on the U.S. Constitution, Declaration of Independence, and the Federalist Papers to graduate. Every year, approximately 21 thousand South Carolina college students now take a class on America’s founding documents because of Jameson’s work.
Jameson has a wide experience in government which includes working at the Pentagon for the Counsel to the Commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps, in the U.S. Senate for Senators Jim DeMint and Tim Scott, for the Federal Communications Commission in Chairman Ajit V. Pai’s Office, at the Heritage Foundation in the Ed Meese Legal Center, for Judge Richard J. Leon at the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, and for South Carolina state Senator Larry Grooms, the lead sponsor of the SC REACH Act.
