The Greater Greer Education Foundation (GGEF) has awarded scholarships to 13 Greer area graduates. At a news conference Tuesday at the Greater Greer Chamber of Commerce, Foundation Chairman Margaret Burch presented certificates to the students.
The scholarships are made possible by funds from the September 2011 Education Gala and local sponsorships.
We are almost to the end of our journey and it is a bittersweet.
Today we analyzed shoe prints and tool markings that may be found on a crime scene. It was intriguing. The thing that stuck out the most was tool markings and how officers get them off what may be the weapon in a crime.
It's day three of our wonderful adventure and today we got to observe Greer Municipal Court.
At the CSI Camp, we learned about fingerprints. It was exciting and interesting but let’s get to the real fun.
Congratulations to the Blue Ridge High School Class of 2012

Broken glass, a white powder substance, and a swab of blood, all waiting to be tested.
Today we learned how to document a scene, pretty easy stuff, or at least that’s what I thought. When the class starts, we go right into a power point. I mean, come on, this is summer time, who is doing power points when we’re not even in school? They weren't your typical power points though. You got to see what officers do at a crime scene, how they scope out for evidence and search the surrounding areas.
Taylor Bowen, a rising senior at Blue Ridge High School, is attending the CSI Crime Camp conducted by the Greer Police Department. Taylor will get a look at forensics and work done at crime scenes by police department specialists. She will participate in practical exercises in crime scene processing, fingerprinting, methods of developing latent prints and shoe impressions. This is Taylor’s report on Monday’s classes.
