GREENVILLE, S.C. (January 31, 2018) – The Bob Jones University Public Policy Organization will host Catherine Templeton, candidate for Governor, for a forum Thursday, Feb. 1 at 6 p.m. in Levinson Hall.

Zach Heltsley, President of the BJU Public Policy Organization said, “We are pleased to host Catherine Templeton to give our students and the greater Greenville community an opportunity to hear from her.”

Catherine graduated from Wofford College with a degree in Political Economics and Philosophy.  Her first job was working in the inspection department of a textile mill in Jonesville, South Carolina.  After she worked her way up to training manager and then senior management over multiple factories, she continued her education and graduated from the University of South Carolina School of Law.
