Drs. Stephanie Ackerson and Trey Franklin receive a Two Thumbs Up Award

Each year, students have the opportunity to nominate and recognize faculty and staff members who have gone above and beyond to make a more inclusive Carolina experience. The Two Thumbs Up award from the Office of Student Disability Services recognizes faculty and staff members at the University of South Carolina who have made a difference for students with disabilities. Congrats to Drs. Stephanie Ackerson and Trey Franklin, who have been awarded this year!

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
