D.J. Bron

From trooper to magistrate, with help from Palmetto College

With his newly earned degree from the University of South Carolina Upstate, D.J. Bron traded in his S.C. Highway Patrol uniform for a magistrate’s robe this summer. It's a position he couldn't have imagined without Palmetto College, part of the university system that offers online bachelor’s degree completion programs.

The University of South Carolina will welcome some of the nation’s and the state’s top students for the university’s most valuable and prestigious scholarships program. Recipients of the Stamps, Carolina and Hamilton scholar awards for in-state students and the Stamps, McNair and Horseshoe Scholar awards for out-of-state students will join the Carolina community in August.

A University of South Carolina professor will do that in August, using modern technology, high-powered telescopes and cameras to record the sky over South Carolina.
