Through the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Speakers Series, The Citadel community and the public can hear from former quarterback Duran Lawson. He is a member of the Class of 2008 who graduated with a degree in Business Administration. His business partner, Andre Roberts, Class of 2009, currently plays for the Buffalo Bills.

In the virtual webinar, Lawson will discuss franchises as a business opportunity, how to build partnerships and more. Additionally, he will discuss how The Citadel experience, both on and off the field, prepared him for this opportunity.

“It was not foreign to me to have long days, and this is very important when you launch your business,” said Duran. “Second — what was the secret sauce between the both of us and the basis of our partnership — we were both military brats, came through sports together, we have similar values and share similar desired outcomes. We knew what we wanted in a business.”

Sunday, November 1 at 3 p.m.
South of Broadway Theatre Company; 1080 East Montague, North Charleston
$30 for general admission and $20 for students, open to the public

Delayed by COVID-19, the Biloxi Blues performance is on its way back to the state. Though it was originally going to be held on campus, it’s been moved to a theater in Park Circle; however, it’s still supported by The Citadel Fine Arts program and has multiple Citadel cast members, as well as a Citadel alumnus as the director.

Biloxi Blues tells the story of young Army recruit Eugene Morris Jerome as he travels from Brooklyn to Biloxi, Mississippi for boot camp during World War II. On his quest to find love, achieve fame, and attain his manhood,

Last performed at the military college in 1988, the new production is directed by Citadel alumnus Bob Luke ‘76. Luke runs a successful acting studio in New York City and has enjoyed an illustrious career as an on-set acting coach for Hollywood movies including RansomRacing Stripes, and Enchanted.

Due to social distancing requirements within the theater, please contact mary@southofbroadway.com to reserve tickets.

Faculty expert spotlight

Lee Westberry, Ph.D., is a professor in the Zucker Family School of Education and the program coordinator for Educational Leadership.

She arrived at The Citadel with extensive educational experience, having served the last 21 years in Berkeley County Schools as a high school assistant principal, middle school principal, high school principal, Executive Director of Secondary Programs and Executive Director of Accountability and Assessment. 

Westberry’s recent scholarship activities include presenting at the National CTE Best Practices Conference, which highlighted her work with career academies. She recently published Putting the Pieces Together: A Systems Approach to School Leadership, which helps school leaders understand how to develop the systems to support the critical work of schools, in order to prevent the “putting out fires” mode of operation. Westberry will release a second title, focused on student support systems and the culture system, in December.

In addition to coordinating the program that helps train more educators in South Carolina, Westberry continues to work with schools across the state to assist with school improvement efforts — including curriculum and assessment alignment, principal mentoring, the learning process and more.

College providing Sept. 25 Ring Presentation livestream and individual photos

All Parents Weekend events originally scheduled for October 2 – 4 are cancelled due to precautions underway to keep campus as safe as possible by reducing possible COVID-19 spreading events.

There will, however, be an opportunity for parents to engage with The President of The Citadel. Gen. Glenn M. Walters, USMC (Ret.), will hold a virtual parents’ engagement on Oct. 1 at 7 p.m. Eastern Time. Parents can connect with Walters by submitting questions via the Facebook Live link while watching the event.

“We understand that it is hard for things to be different, and that it may be disappointing for parents not to be able to enjoy a traditional Parents Weekend, but we greatly appreciate your understanding in the knowledge that everything possible is being done to keep your sons and daughters safe and the campus operating safely during this challenging time,” said The Citadel Commandant of Cadets, CAPT Geno Paluso.

Parents, family members and friends are strongly discouraged from coming onto campus during what would have been Parents Weekend, in support of the college’s efforts to minimize COVID-19 exposures on campus with the goal of continuing in-person instruction until Thanksgiving furlough.

The Commandant’s Office is making decisions about leave, based on conditions, on a week-to-week basis. If leave is granted that weekend, it will not be announced until late in the week.

Everything you need to know about the Ring Presentation, photos and leave

Members of the Class of 2021 will be celebrated with a livestreamed, traditional Ring Presentation at 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 25, in McAlister Field House. Only ring-eligible cadets, veteran and active duty students will attend the event.

“The Citadel is committed to helping ring recipients and families celebrate this special day,” said Col. John Dorrian, USAF (Ret.), vice president, Office of Communications and Marketing. “As a member of The Citadel Class of 1990, I know just how much this day means to cadets, and to those who love and support them. We also know our ability to continue in-person on campus until Thanksgiving is fragile and relies on the cooperation of everyone in The Citadel family. We are providing the richest experience possible during these unusual circumstances and greatly appreciate the understanding of parents.”

As the presentation event is restricted, the college is providing the following:

  • Watch the event livestreamed on The Citadel’s Facebook and YouTube pages beginning at 5 p.m.
  • Professional photographers will take a picture of each cadet or student receiving a ring. (No other photographers are permitted into the event.)
  • At no charge, cadet ring presentation photos will be available with yearbook portraits in October on the college’s intranet, Lesesne Gateway. Cadets will have access to download them. An announcement of the availability of those pictures will be made later.
  • Veteran and active duty students will receive their ring presentation photos via email, also at no cost.
  • Our photographers will also be at the chapel, the War Memorial and on the parade ground taking photos. On Saturday, those photos will be available for families to download, at no charge, here. 

Leave policy for seniors on Sept. 26 and 27

There will be no leave for any cadets following the Sept. 25 Ring Presentation.

The Commandant’s Office is granting the following leave to ring-eligible seniors: Saturday Sept. 26 from 5:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday Sept. 27 from 5:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Those seniors also have the option to spend Saturday night off campus.

Parents are asked to respect the college’s efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19 on campus and are discouraged from entering campus Sept. 25−26 other than for the purpose of picking up a cadet who is eligible for leave.

Who or what inspired you to attend The Citadel?

It was not a “who” that inspired me to attend The Citadel but, a “what.” When people back home heard that I was thinking about going to a military college they kept telling me that I wasn’t going to make it, and I think that that was one of the biggest driving factors. I feel when someone tells me that I can’t do something or can’t make it through something, then I have to prove them wrong. I show them just how strong I am.

What was the most difficult obstacle you conquered that made you feel you earned the honor of wearing the ring?

I’m originally from Staten Island, New York, so that is 745 miles away from the front gates of The Citadel. Being so far from home and out of my comfort zone was only made worse by that fact that I was 10 hours and 47 minutes away from my family and if anything happened, I would not be able to get there in time.

A few months before I graduated high school my uncle was diagnosed with liver cancer. We were very very close. After I matriculated, there was one thought always on my mind: will I get to say goodbye to him? We knobs made it to Thanksgiving and I was able to go home. I was extremely happy to spend the holiday with him. He passed away during winter furlough and being away from family after losing a close family member was the toughest thing ever and sometimes, I thought I wouldn’t make it through, but I did. Knowing that I made it through what was probably one of the most difficult things in my life, and stayed on track, makes me confident I earned the honor of wearing the ring.

In what ways has this institution impacted your life?

I have met people who have become great friends, mentors, and family. I would probably never change this experience for anything. I have learned so much in these past years that I would never learn elsewhere.

What is inscribed on the inside of your ring and what is the significance?

On the inside of my ring it says “And still, I rise, ” a quote from poet and philosopher Maya Angelou. I chose this quote because one thing that I have held onto is no matter what you face, it’s not the end. After losing my uncle to liver cancer my freshman year, I found in my junior year that my aunt had breast cancer. I thought it was the end of the world. I was lucky enough to have my closest friends to lean on. I went from thinking it was the end of the world to knowing that no matter what comes my way, it will not stop me.

When you put your ring on your finger, what will you be thinking about being a cadet?

Of course, I will remember all the stuff from knob year, but I will never forget the people here. They are what make everything worth it. I think one of the scariest parts about this year is knowing that soon, I won’t be able to see some of these people everyday who have become like family.

What is a song that describes your emotions leading up to Ring Day?

“Started from the bottom” by Drake. We all started this as knobs, at the very bottom of the totem pole, and now we are the seniors that run the Corps.

You are connected to Alumni, not only through your Citadel Experience but through the wearing of the ring. How does that make you feel?

Knowing that I’m connected to the people that came before me is amazing. Knowing that I will now wear the same ring, alongside the people that I looked up to before, makes me even more proud of this accomplishment.

Why do you think it is important that cadets and/or people in general understand the symbolism and weight that the ring holds?

It is important for cadets to understand the elements in the ring that we wear. It symbolizes a bond. We have all been molded, bent and shaped to be the men and women we now are. The weight of the ring is like the weight of the standards the school has set; we must carry them everywhere we go.

Henriquez is a Health and Exercise Science major.

Note: This is the first in a series stories intended to show the different journeys members of The Citadel Class of 2021 have undertaken to earn their bands of gold. The Regimental Public Affairs team, Cadet Ruby Bolden, public affairs officer, and Cadet Samantha Walton, public affairs NCO sent a list of questions to participating cadets. These are the resulting stories.

This is me as a knob during my first week, with Marcus Milhouse who graduated in 2019. He was my cadre squad leader and my mentor.

International business leader to discuss profit and purpose with the Baker School of Business https://today.citadel.edu/international-business-leader-to-discuss-profit-and-purpose-with-the-baker-school-of-business/ Tue, 15 Sep 2020 14:25:42 +0000 https://today.citadel.edu/?p=18574 The Baker School of Business is hosting a presentation by Stuart Williams, an international businessperson and founder of In Place Impact.]]>

By Maria Aselage, Director of Communications and Marketing for the Baker School of Business

Business is focused on making a profit – but sometimes there’s more to it. That’s why the Tommy and Victoria Baker School of Business is hosting a special presentation by Stuart Williams, an international businessperson and the founder of In Place Impact. This comes as the school launches its new partnership, the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Speaker Series. The virtual event will be held on Sept. 17 at 8 a.m. and is open to the public with pre-registration.

Williams is a visionary leader who co-created the global platform, “Profit and Purpose.” He has spent the past 12 years designing a new form of inclusive capitalism and economics emphasizing making a profit while making a difference. During his presentation, he will discuss Impact Economics, its role in entrepreneurship, how it empowers businesses to become catalysts for social change and how young leaders can help build a sustainable future for all.

“Impact Economics, in part, encourages business leaders to deliver the highest and most viable corporate profits while creating increased positive impacts for their communities and environment. This idea mirrors The Citadel’s model of servant leadership, so we are excited to have Stuart Williams as the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Speaker Series inaugural guest this academic year,” said Michael R. Weeks, Ph.D., dean of the Tommy and Victoria Baker School of Business.

The Innovation and Entrepreneurship Speaker Series introduces students to business professionals working in entrepreneurial endeavors across various mediums of society. It is organized by James Bezjian, Ph.D. and David Desplaces, Ph.D.

This event is free; those interested in attending the webinar must register ahead of time here.

Two health care organizations helping lead campus testing and tracing

The Citadel continues moving forward, with the Corps of Cadets in its fifth full week of the fall semester on campus. Cadets and students are wearing masks, social distancing, and continuing studies through a hybrid structure of in-person and remote classes. It’s not a normal Citadel experience, there are four football games, rather than a full roster, for example, but it is the best, most effective and safest experience the college can provide at this time.

“It’s a little slower, we don’t get to leave much, and we are cleaning our rooms more. But, our friends are here, we can keep learning, we seniors will soon get our rings, and we are together. The Long Grey Line is unbroken and that’s a very good thing,” said Cadet Ruby Bolden, regimental public affairs officer for the Class of 2021.

With Operation Fall Return concluded, the campus community is focused on successfully completing the remaining weeks on campus before the Thanksgiving furlough departure, Nov. 24. Cadets and students will leave campus at that point, finishing their finals after the holiday remotely and not returning to until the spring semester begins in January, as conditions permit.

Occupational medicine services by Roper St. Francis Healthcare; rapid testing by Palmetto Primary Care Physicians

As on-campus learning continues and the Budd Group’s expert sanitation persists, two health care organizations are engaged to detect and track COVID-19 cases are mobilizing their functions.

“Caring for our campus community is always our top priority, but it is a duty that is now especially complex due to the pandemic,” said Gen. Glenn Walters, USMC (Ret.), president of The Citadel. “Our infirmary can provide quality care for our cadets, but COVID-19 project management extended beyond what we could do ourselves. That’s why we established partnerships with Roper St. Francis Healthcare and Palmetto Primary Care Physicians. This will ensure that on campus testing is expedited efficiently, with professionally delivered results and case management.”

Charleston-based Roper St. Francis Healthcare (RSFH) will provide occupational medicine services for The Citadel as the pandemic continues.  RSFH has a 160-year history of serving patients in the Lowcountry. The system has four hospitals and more than 100 facilities and doctor’s’ offices in the tri-county area.

RSFH is providing Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) nose swab tests, lab processing of tests, case management and contact tracing related to any cadet, student, or employee testing positive for COVID-19, or those on campus in close contact with someone who tests positive. Two RSFH registered nurses are assigned to this fulltime program, operating from off campus.

Palmetto Primary Care Physicians (PPCP) is providing clinical laboratory services for the campus population, including rapid molecular test kits, random population testing, and telehealth assessments. The group has placed two Abbott COVID-19 Analyzer machines at the campus infirmary and trained the existing infirmary staff to operate the machines that process rapid tests, garnering results within 15 minutes. In addition, PPCP remains on call should an expanded effort with additional machines and personnel be required such as for an athletic team prior to a competition.

Improved dashboard for COVID-19 cases and easy- access information

Updates related about operational information are provided on The Citadel’s COVID-19 resources web page here. An expanded COVID-19 dashboard on this page now includes the following information provided to the college by RSFH, which reflects the numbers from this day, Sept. 14, 2020.

Additionally on that page there is an e-form to send in a question, a regularly updated list of frequently asked questions, and an ongoing log of all COVID-19 related updates and stories. (The Operation Fall Return page has been retired and archived.)

Protocols for cadets and students testing positive for COVID-19

The protocols for each campus population is as follows:

  • RSHF explains reason for call and gathers contact history
  • RSFH determine exposure risk category of individuals based on risk classification
  • RSFH sends exposure notice to Citadel COVID team
    • List individuals, degree of exposure & quarantine recommendations
  • Cadets who test positive are immediately isolated. Their roommate is also then quarantined.
  • Cadets who live within a one-day drive have the option of isolating/quarantining at home or on campus.
  • Cadets with hometowns farther than a one-day drive will be cared for in isolation/quarantine on campus with medical professionals and staff caring for them.

Non-cadet students, faculty and staff

  • RSFH explains reason for call and determines whether they are asymptomatic or well
  • RSFH notifies non-cadet of positive result and sends positive results email to contact and Citadel COVID team
  • RSFH initiates contact tracing
  • RSFH determines exposure risk category of individuals based on risk classification
  • RSFH sends exposure notice to Citadel COVID team
    • List individuals, degree of exposure & quarantine recommendations

Case management by RSFH for positive cases:

  • RSFH RNs reach out to individual who tested positive at least once weekly to perform case management
  • Contacts individual at or near day 4 of illness, verify they are progressing and refer to medical follow up guidelines if patient is worse or not improving.
    • Reinforce out of work/school for at least 10-days after symptom onset. Plan next call.
  • Continues to monitor until clearance is expected, if clearance is expected within two days, discuss planned clearance date.
  • RSFH sends email with planned discharge date to individual and Citadel COVID team

Citadel ranked #1 Top Public College in the South for 10th consecutive year https://today.citadel.edu/citadel-ranked-1-top-public-college-in-the-south-for-10th-consecutive-year/ Mon, 14 Sep 2020 04:51:00 +0000 https://today.citadel.edu/?p=18484 "Ten straight years of earning the #1 Top Public College in the South position is a singularly distinctive achievement that should be celebrated,” said Gen. Glenn M. Walters, president of The Citadel.]]>

U.S. News & World Report releases newest college rankings

For the 10th consecutive year, The Citadel maintains the distinction of being ranked the #1 Top Public School in the South offering up to a master’s degree by U.S. News & World Report. The Citadel is ranked #2 overall in the South when private and public institutions are combined.

“Ten straight years of earning the #1 Top Public College in the South position is a singularly distinctive achievement that should be celebrated,” said Gen. Glenn M. Walters, USMC (Ret.), president of The Citadel. “This ranking is calculated by U.S. News & World Report based on data the college provides annually to the U.S. Department of Education, as well as other data such as alumni giving. This accomplishment is the result of a concentrated effort by countless members of The Citadel family who are dedicated to the mission of developing principled leaders. I applaud our entire campus.”

Additionally, The Citadel earned the ranking of #1 Best College for Veterans in the South for the third consecutive year, and the School of Engineering is ranked as the #17 program in the nation offering up to master’s degrees. The Citadel School of Engineering has earned a place in the top 25 programs in America from U.S. News since 2012.

The U.S. News & World Report 2021 Best Colleges rankings were released Sept. 14 by the news outlet that was one of the first American publishers to produce a college rankings list based on a complex formula of publicly reported data.

“This is a rewarding, but not surprising, ranking for those of us who attend and for the many who came before us in the Long Grey Line. Much like alumni frequently confess, I believe attending The Citadel is truly the best choice a student can make,” said Cadet Col. Nicholas Piacentini. “Everyone enters the South Carolina Corps of Cadets as a common person; those same people graduate with an uncommon desire and ability to succeed by applying principled leadership in all professional pursuits.”

How The Citadel ranks

The Citadel’s most prominent rankings in the newest 2021 Best Colleges rankings include:

#1 Public University in the South; #2 overall

#1 for Veterans, Regional Universities South

#11 Best Value in the South

#9 Nationally for Undergraduate Civil Engineering

#17 Nationally for Undergraduate Engineering

#6 Best Undergraduate Teaching, Regional Universities South

#12 Most innovative schools, Regional Universities South

“We want prospective students to know why The Citadel experience is superior. We encourage high school students and their parents to contact us to discuss what the college offers for their areas of interest in a specially tailored, one-on-one conference, “said Sally Selden, Ph.D., SPHR, provost and dean of The Citadel. “For those considering non-cadet programs offered through The Citadel Graduate College, you can feel confident that you will receive the same top-notch instruction for your investment.”

High school students aspiring to attend The Citadel beginning in the fall of 2021 can choose whether to include ACT or SAT scores in their applications. Due to the cancellations of the spring and summer standardized test dates, and the uncertainties of the scheduled early fall test dates, The Citadel is implementing a test-optional policy for high school students applying for the fall 2021 term.

That progress will continue.]]> Bond Hall Eagle at The CitadeBond Hall Eagle at The Citade

On behalf of our Citadel community, I want to thank Fred L. Price, Jr. ’75, for his decades of faithful, honorable volunteer service to our college. The Citadel has made great progress during his tenure on the board and as board chair. That progress will continue.

As our Board continues its oversight role, we will continue to do so “free from undue influence from political, religious, or other external bodies and protect the institution from such influence,” as prescribed in the Board of Visitors Commitment to Excellence and Ethics, which all board members sign. 

We will also remain dedicated to the principles of honor, duty and respect. These are the core values of our college, and they will guide our actions as we move forward together. 

Our mission is “to educate and develop our students to become principled leaders in all walks of life by instilling the core values of The Citadel in a disciplined and intellectually challenging environment.” Rest assured, we will continue the mission.
