SI Congratulates Emerging Leader Jameson Broggi for Helping Pass the REACH Act in South Carolina

Jameson Broggi, a member of the Steamboat Institute’s Emerging Leaders Council, has succeeded in getting South Carolina to pass the Reinforcing College Education on America‚Äôs Constitutional Heritage (REACH) Act. This law, championed tirelessly for years by Jameson, requires all first-year students at public colleges in South Carolina to receive a mandatory course in the American Founding principles.

By arming future leaders with knowledge of America’s First Principles, the promotion of which is the Steamboat Institute’s mission, the REACH Act will help preserve freedom, liberty, and the American experiment for generations to come. Students will learn the civic education that is a necessary component of active citizenship and participation in the political process at a time when these founding values are so badly needed.

In recognition of his tireless efforts to pass this legislation, the South Carolina Senate passed a Senate Resolution congratulating him. Read the resolution HERE or pasted below.
