“Philadelphia Futures changed my life. Introducing me to a small liberal arts college was the foundation for my success.”

Terrance Williams was among the first cohort of students to attend Gettysburg College – Philadelphia Futures’ first partner college. The rural setting was a powerful contrast to the city landscape that he was familiar with as a student at Overbrook High School. Terrance’s success is rooted in his ability to adapt to a new world. Understanding deeply the benefit of a Gettysburg education, Terrance drew on his Philadelphia Futures foundation and learned how to maximize the resources on campus.
