About This Show
In its March 2012 issue, Southern Living magazine selected Charleston, South Carolina’s, American College of the Building Arts as one of the first recipients of its “Heroes of the New South” award. The school was named in the category of Architecture. "In a time when we are returning to the values of craftsmanship, this college is leading the way,” says Heroes juror Jim Strickland. “Their graduates are continuing crafts that we once feared would be lost.” The American College of the Building Arts (ACBA) gives students the opportunity to receive a quality liberal arts education while learning the skills needed to excel in their chosen field. Joining Dr. Edgar to talk about the award, and about the ACBA, are the college’s president, Lt. General (Ret.) Colby M. Broadwater, III; Kerri Forrest, Director of Institutional Advancement; Emily Gillett, a senior plaster student; and Erin Street, an editor for Southern Living.
