In addition to practicing architecture, Perkins currently serves as an adjunct instructor of architecture at the South Carolina Governor’s School for the Arts and Humanities.

Clemson World Magazine did a recent feature on alumni teaching the arts at the Governor’s School. Read the full article here to learn how Perkins and other Clemson alumni have used their background in design education to inform their teaching.
