Mayor Will Haynie met with The Citadel’s newest Regimental Commander of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets, Brandon Johnson, Friday to congratulate him and discuss the time-honored responsibility.

The Wando High School graduate’s new role was announced during a ceremony in Jenkins Hall on March 8.

The leadership positions in the South Carolina Corps of Cadets, which make up the military component of The Citadel’s student body, are appointed by the Commandant after a series of performance reviews and increased rank throughout their academic career.

As Johnson rose through the ranks from Company Clerk his sophomore year to Battalion Sergeant Major his junior year, he developed a passion for helping cadets reach their potential. As he enters his senior year, he hopes to hone his leadership skills in his new rank.

“Cadet Johnson embodies the spirit of Mount Pleasant and he will undoubtedly carry those principles into this demanding leadership role,” said Mayor Haynie. “We couldn’t be more proud of his accomplishment and look forward to seeing the bright future he has ahead.”

In his role as Regimental Commander, holding the rank of Cadet Colonel, Johnson will lead The Citadel Corps’ five battalions and 21 companies during the 2023 academic year.

This meeting was an especially sentimental and proud moment for Mayor Haynie as he held the same position in the Corps of Cadets.

Remembering Dudley Saleeby Jr., ’66, former member of The Citadel Board of Visitors https://today.citadel.edu/remembering-dudley-saleeby-jr-66-former-member-of-the-citadel-board-of-visitors/ Wed, 18 May 2022 16:26:52 +0000 https://today.citadel.edu/?p=32327 The Citadel is mourning the loss of one of its most passionate supporters, a prominent alumnus known for his generous contributions to his alma mater.]]>

The Citadel is mourning the loss of one of its most passionate supporters, a prominent alumnus known for his generous contributions to his alma mater.

Dudley Saleeby Jr., a member of the Class of 1966, passed away on Sunday, May 15.

Just one day before, on May 14, The Citadel Alumni Association (CAA) passed a resolution recognizing his life-long contributions to the both the college and the CAA.

Be it resolved that The Citadel Alumni Association expresses its gratitude to Dudley Saleeby Jr. for a lifetime of selfless service to our beloved alma mater, said service being from the small to the large, in countless roles, all for the benefit of our cadets, the college, and the Association.

Portion of the CAA resolution passed in honor of Dudley Saleeby Jr., ’66

In 2007, Saleeby was named Distinguished Life Member of the CAA — a title awarded to only 28 alumni to date. It is the highest honor bestowed by the Association, and recognizes alumni who achieved excellence in their professions and made meaningful contributions to The Citadel, the CAA and their local communities.

His contributions included serving a one-year term as president of the CAA, and more than 50 years as the Chair for the Class of 1966 with The Citadel Foundation.

In addition, Saleeby also served on The Citadel Board of Visitors from 1999-2005.

Dudley Saleeby Jr. (back row, fourth from the left) at a meeting of The Citadel Board of Visitors in Sept. 2002.

“Dudley Saleeby represented everything one could hope for in an alumnus of The Citadel: a servant leader for his colleges, his church, his community and his country,” said Col. Dylan Goff, ’02, chair of the BOV. “We are grateful for his years of dedicated service, and send our deepest condolences to his family as we join them in mourning his loss.”

Saleeby also served as solicitor in Florence for decades.

“I had the great privilege to deliver the CAA’s resolution to him Saturday afternoon,” said Mark Brandenburg, General Counsel at The Citadel. “Sadly, I was his last visitor. The resolution touched him deeply. He loved The Citadel and was a great and passionate advocate for the school for over 50 years. His passing is The Citadel’s great loss. I had the opportunity to share two alma maters with him — The Citadel and Duke Law School. Our seats in Johnson Hagood were on the same row, and we also sat together at many Duke basketball games. Both schools will miss him tremendously.”

Obituary from The Post and Courier

Dudley Saleeby, Jr. of Florence, SC, died peacefully at home in the company of his family on May 15, 2022.

Born in Florence on September 15, 1944, he was the son of Dudley Saleeby and Mary Frances (“Tumpy”) Hammond Saleeby. He was raised in Dillon, SC, surrounded by an extended Lebanese family.

At Dillon High School, he played football, basketball, ran track, and put the shot. He also served as Governor of the Carolinas District for Key Club International, for which he traveled extensively to speak at meetings and conventions and made lifelong friends.

Later, at The Citadel, he continued this involvement through Circle K, eventually being elected International Vice-President. Mr. Saleeby graduated from The Citadel with a degree in political science in 1966, and received his law degree in 1969 from Duke University School of Law.

He dearly loved his alma maters and maintained a relationship throughout his life with both.

He served for over fifty years as Class Agent for the Citadel Class of ’66, keeping in touch annually with every member of his class.

Having served several terms on the Board of Directors of The Citadel Alumni Association, he was proud to be elected its President in 1969. One of his happiest memories was taking the review of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets at the Homecoming Parade that year.

He also served for six years on The Citadel Board of Visitors, the governing body of the school, and for many years on the Board of The Citadel Foundation.

Dudley was also a fixture inside and outside of Johnson Hagood Stadium, where he rarely missed a Bulldog home game.

At Duke University School of Law he served as President of the Duke Bar Association and was also active as an alumnus. A devoted Duke basketball fan, he proudly attended all thirteen Final Fours of the Coach K era, including the one in New Orleans just a month before his death.

Following law school, Mr. Saleeby served in the US Army as a military intelligence advisor in Vietnam, attaining the rank of captain.

Dudley’s law career was primarily as a public servant, serving the state as a criminal prosecutor. He loved the discipline of preparing cases for trial, working with law enforcement officers, and bringing justice and closure to victims and their families.

From 1972 to 1975, he was an Assistant Attorney General, trying cases statewide on behalf of the SC Attorney General.

In 1979, following his relocation to Florence with his wife Lalla, he was elected Solicitor of the Twelfth Judicial Circuit of South Carolina and served Florence and Marion Counties for twenty years in that capacity. When he retired from full-time prosecution, he continued to serve as a part-time assistant in both the Twelfth and Third Circuits. He enjoyed swapping courtroom stories with colleagues from across the country at the annual summer conference of the National District Attorneys Association.

Mr. Saleeby was a life-long Presbyterian. At First Presbyterian Church in Florence, he enjoyed being a teacher of the Price Sunday School Class. He was a former chairman of the Board of Deacons, and later an Elder, serving as Clerk of Session. He also served on various Presbytery committees. The Christian fellowship of his church family was an anchor in his life.

Dudley loved to travel, and enjoyed planning and taking interesting trips. Favorite destinations were national parks, Ireland, Scotland, and European sites associated with military history. He also loved sitting on the porch of his weekend home in downtown Charleston.

Mr. Saleeby is survived by his wife of forty-nine years, Lalla Harrison Saleeby, originally from Leesburg, Virginia; his daughter, Catherine Ravenel Saleeby McDowell (Cat) and her husband, John, of Raleigh, NC; his son, Wilson Dudley Saleeby (Wil) and his wife, Quinn, of Bluffton, SC; and five grandchildren: Mary Katherine Saleeby, Robert Saleeby, Adger Saleeby, Jack McDowell, and Charlotte McDowell. He is also survived by a large group of extended family and in-laws.

The funeral will take place at 3:00 on Thursday, May 19, at First Presbyterian Church, 700 Park Avenue, Florence, SC, followed by interment in Mount Hope Cemetery with military honors.

The family will receive at their home from 5:00 to 7:00 pm on Wednesday evening.

Waters-Powell Funeral Home is serving the family. Memorial donations may be made to First Presbyterian Church, 700 Park Avenue, Florence, SC 29501 or The Citadel Foundation, 171 Moultrie St., Charleston, SC 29409.

Careers in medicine: goals realized through The Citadel’s pre-health opportunities https://today.citadel.edu/careers-in-medicine-goals-realized-through-the-citadels-pre-health-opportunities/ Mon, 16 May 2022 21:50:25 +0000 https://today.citadel.edu/?p=31942 "I think medicine is one of the most humbling professions and I’m excited at the prospect of building relationships and serving those around me."]]>

Two military doctors, an Air Force medical student and an Army nurse: all becoming servant leaders in medicine

The Citadel Director of Health Sciences, Sarah A. Imam, M.D., had two reasons to attend the University of South Carolina Greenville Medical School graduation. Drs. Fernando Gonzalez, The Citadel Class of 2016 and Dillon Graham, ’17, both completed the shared career goal of becoming medical doctors.

“It’s been an absolute pleasure being a part Fernando Gonzalez’s journey to becoming a doctor. He was a student and advisee of mine while he was a cadet at The Citadel, graduating in 2016. Now he is a medical school graduate, finishing in May, and is off to an Emergency Medicine Residency in Virginia in addition to serving in The United States Navy Reserve as a medical officer,” Imam shared following the ceremony.

Additionally, Imam was on hand to congratulate Capt. Dillon Graham, The Citadel Class of 2017 Regimental Commander.

“Dillon is a new medical doctor and a newlywed. His next step is going to a surgery residency in Greenville in addition to his promotion to captain in the Air Force. It was an exciting day and The Citadel was very well represented,” Imam added.

Every year cadets graduate from The Citadel to go on to medical school, becoming nurses, physician’s assistants or physical therapists. Imam says the college provides four years of pre-health guidance to help the cadets realize those goals.

“One of our Class of 2022 cadets who was a business major is going to medical school. Though biology might be a common pre-med major, is important to understand you can be any major and still go into medicine,” Imam stressed. “At The Citadel, we normally have 60 to 70 pre-health cadets with a variety of majors, plus our nursing majors. We make sure all cadets interested in health careers are accurately advised.”

Programs are in place at The Citadel where the cadets and students “simply have to be engaged in the two health career clubs to gain all the competencies that are needed to be considered for competitive medical programs after graduation,” Imam said.

Some of the benefits for cadets and students participating in The Citadel’s Pre-Health Society and Alpha Epsilon Delta, The Health Preprofessional Honor Society, include:

  • Discounted prep programs paid for with regular tuition (or GI Bill funds for veteran students)
  • Scholarships
  • Research opportunities
  • Mentor and job shadowing matches
  • Healthcare study abroad service experience
  • Organized and vetted volunteering opportunities

“These opportunities are carefully curated for the cadets and students to make their path to medicine a direct one,” Imam said.

Read about other Corps alumni who are successfully entering medical service below and here.

2nd Lt. Bennett Lucas, ’22, a U.S. Air Force-funded medical student

His service to others while a member of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets included serving as Alpha Company Commander. Now, 2nd Lt. Bennett Lucas’s service to country is getting underway as the recipient of a coveted Air Force Health Professional Scholarship Program (HPSP) slot. The program covers his tuition at the University of South Carolina School of Medicine: Columbia along with living expenses, with his commitment to serve as a medical officer for at least four years after that.

Lucas’s classmate, Cadet Olivia Hime, also bound for medical school, asked him and their peer, Malcom Jackson (below), a few questions about their experiences to date.

Cadet Bennett Lucas, The Citadel Class of 2022

Where are you from?

I am from Lexington, South Carolina. The most unique part of Lexington is that it has the “small-town” feel, but is close to the capital city of Columbia, as well as being a short drive to the beach or to the mountains. My family had land growing up and raised horses and chickens, so there was always plenty of work to be done as a kid.

What was the best part of being a cadet at The Citadel?

I think the best part of being a cadet is the relationships that you build. Whether it is with classmates or faculty members, The Citadel’s campus community is a really close one. This unique aspect has helped me in countless ways.

What inspired you to pursue a career in medicine? What do you plan to specialize in?

I decided to pursue medicine after an introductory Health Science course in high school. Since then, I have shadowed and had internships with many physicians who have guided me in pursuing this career path. I want to be a physician simply because I love people.

During my junior year as a First Sergeant in Sierra Company, a cadet fell over a third floor railing onto the quad. She was in my company, and I was one of the first people to rush to her side. Along with a few other cadets, we were able to stabilize her, and I called for an ambulance. I followed her to the hospital and stayed in the waiting room of the ER until her parents were able to meet us there. It was one of the most traumatic and impactful experiences I have had in my life and pushed me to continue pursuing a career as a physician.

I think medicine is one of the most humbling professions, and I’m excited at the prospect of building relationships and serving those around me. I plan on specializing in either cardiovascular or general surgery. I want to use my hands to serve those in critical need.

What is the hardest obstacle you overcame at The Citadel? In your journey to practice medicine?

The hardest obstacle I overcame while at The Citadel and in my journey to practice medicine was taking the MCAT. I took the test for the first time in January of my junior year. I didn’t put nearly enough time into preparing for the exam and my score reflected that. It was a huge setback and made me really question whether I had what it took to get into medical school. I used that experience as a motivator to study and prepare to take the MCAT again. After a second attempt, I scored high enough to get into medical school. What I thought would be a huge setback and obstacle turned into a motivator that I used to push myself toward success.

What do you like the most about the medical field? Is there anything you feel needs improvement?

I love that I can work hard to be prepared to help people who can’t help themselves. If I could change one thing about the medical field, it would be the medical disparities present in low-income areas. Especially in South Carolina, there are many places and people who don’t have access to sufficient healthcare. This should be considered a right, available to all regardless of socioeconomic status or class.

What is something you learned at The Citadel that you will take with you?

One thing I learned at The Citadel is that stress is artificial. Stress is an internal reaction to external factors, and it is up to you to decide whether or not you’re going to let things turn into stress.

What advice would you give someone following in your footsteps?

I would tell them to never stop putting yourself out there. Go for the positions of greater responsibility, apply for the internship you don’t think you’ll get and take chances. You’ll never be successful or achieve your highest potential unless you aim high. You’ll be amazed at the pieces that fall into place when you try. The worst that can happen is you get told no.

2nd Lt. Malcolm Jackson, ’22, Army nurse focused on caring for military families and veterans

Nursing Cadet Malcolm Jackson poses for a portrait in Stevens Barracks at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina on April 12, 2021.

Tell us about your hometown

I’m from Bloomingdale, Georgia. It is a smaller city that is often overshadowed by its neighboring city, Savannah. Growing up in this area was unique in that it provided me with a diverse and geographically complex environment. Many athletic camps and summer programs I attended were hosted in the city of Savannah, while I grew up and attended school in the countryside.

What was the best part of being a cadet at The Citadel?

The best part of being a cadet at The Citadel was the challenges that I had to overcome to progress and grow my cadet career. I was raised to never quit and readily accept challenges, which often helped me develop my overall character, demeanor and discipline.

What inspired you to pursue a career in medicine? Are you planning to specialize in one area?

My family was the biggest influence on my career choice. My sister and my aunts were constantly beacons of success and happiness in their nursing careers. In my senior year of high school, I often visited and cared for my great-grandfather, which also pushed me to choose a medical profession that would have the most patient-practitioner interaction. I am grateful for the relationship I developed with my great-grandfather as a result of the care I provided him. This, along with the opportunities to learn and practice medicine, cemented nursing as my desired career of choice.

I plan on specializing in Psychiatry or Critical Care for active duty, veterans, their families and the surrounding communities. I understand that mental health is at a critical point in today’s society and we need support for our armed services. This is where I believe I can have a profound impact on people’s lives.

What was the hardest obstacle you overcame at The Citadel? In your journey to practice medicine?

The most difficult obstacle I overcame at the Citadel was my own complacency. My sophomore year roommate, along with my parents, motivated me to make the most of the opportunities provided at The Citadel. In my journey to practice medicine, the largest obstacle is the uncertainty that comes with inexperience and building confidence to an extent where you can actively recollect and apply knowledge from the classroom.

What do you like the most about the medical field? Is there anything you feel needs improvement?

What I like most is the ample opportunity to improve the lives of patients in different areas of healthcare practice. If there was anything to improve, that which is most important to me would be the regulation of nurse to patient ratio designed by governing boards of nursing professionals.

What is something you learned at The Citadel that you will take with you?

I’ve learned many concepts and takeaways that I’ve adopted into my way of thinking. Of these, I will always remember to lead without recourse. This means doing the right thing even when no one is looking and ensures a confident leader who will navigate morally and ethically through any adverse situation.

What is your next step?

After graduating from The Citadel I will study for my NCLEX and, after passing, proceed to my Basic Officer Leader Course in San Antonio, Texas. Ideally, I would like to be stationed in Washington D.C. to work at Walter Reed Hospital. I feel this would be a great learning opportunity and work environment.

What advice would you give someone following in your footsteps?

My only advice is to put your heart into everything you do. If you put your effort and care into your tasks, obligations or job, you will gain from it in one way or another. One of the most underappreciated gifts is often character development. We are growing as long as we live. Our only limit is what we place on ourselves.

Thad Miller: A cut above the rest https://today.citadel.edu/thad-miller-a-cut-above-the-rest/ Sat, 14 May 2022 11:00:00 +0000 https://today.citadel.edu/?p=32243 Having worked on campus for 51 years , Thad Miller is still cutting the hair of Citadel cadets — past, present and future — among his many other loyal clients.]]>

As seen on WCBD – Count on 2, by Carolyn Murray

Thad Miller made history as The Citadel’s first Black barber in 1971, when Black and white cadets still got their hair cut by different barbers.

When he was hired, Miller recalled the higher-ups telling him he should get one thing very clear: that he would cut “the Blacks hair only.” At the time, there were only eight Black cadets at The Citadel, so Miller had a lot of free time, while white cadets lined up out the door for the white barber.

One day, a white cadet got tired of waiting. He sat down in Miller’s chair, and the white barber gave him the go-ahead. When Miller was finished, he remembers the cadet getting out of the chair and telling his friends “y’all need to try this guy, he can cut!”

51 years later, Miller is still cutting the hair of Citadel cadets, past present and future, among his many other loyal clients.

Jimmy Coaxum has been coming to the barbershop for most of his life and has built a special bond with Miller.

“Thad was more than just a barber who worked here,” Coaxum said. “We always thought of him as family.”

One of Miller’s more well-known clients is Charleston Police Chief Luther Reynolds. When Chief Reynolds was diagnosed with cancer, he turned to Miller for help through the process.

“He told me he was looking for a barber and I said ‘you don’t need to look anymore because you just found one.’ And he came over and got a haircut and he’s been coming by every two weeks ever since. And even before his surgery and what not, we would pray together and talk. We just had a privacy in here.”

Thad Miller

Savaad Miller has been coming to the barbershop his whole life, although he is still one of Miller’s newer clients compared to those who have been coming for decades. As his grandfather gives him a fresh cut, he says he might carry on the family tradition.

Whether Miller is cutting the hair of clients that feel like family, or actual family, one thing is clear: it is always a good time at the Family Barbershop.

The Citadel Swain Department of Nursing graduates 29 future nurses

The Swain Department of Nursing is recognizing its fourth graduating class.

On May 5, the department’s Class of 2022 received their nursing pins during a traditional pinning ceremony in the college’s Summerall Chapel. Presenting new nurses with a pin or badge dates back centuries. At The Citadel, the pin is presented after a four-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree is earned.

I am very proud of where I am today. It took hard work and determination. I have family members who are nurses and I did not want to do anything else. I’d recommend attending The Citadel for the nursing program, and for the Division 1 Track and Field team!

There are 15 cadets and 12 evening (non-cadet) nursing graduates in the group.

The guest speaker for the ceremony served as the Surgeon General, Headquarters, for the U.S. Air Force, Pentagon and also served as the first Surgeon General of the U.S. Space Force before recently retiring.

“You can help lead the change where you work. You are at the bedside 24/7. You’ll know what works and what doesn’t. As nursing leaders you will be learning throughout your entire career. You will provide the evidence and lead when change is needed,”said Lt. Gen. Dorothy A. Hogg, USAF (Ret.), the pinning ceremony speaker.

The Citadel launched its nursing program in 2017, earning national accreditation by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education in 2019 and graduating the inaugural class of nursing cadets and students in May of 2019.

Recipients recognized for outstanding academic and professional achievements

The Citadel honored five of its most outstanding cadets and two distinguished faculty members during the Awards Convocation on Thursday, May 5 and the South Carolina Corps of Cadets Commencement ceremony on Saturday, May 7.

The awards, which are given out annually, recognize the cadets with the highest grade-point averages, the most courteous member of the graduating class, a cadet and a faculty member who achieved academic excellence, and a faculty member for his or her love of teaching.

The two academic leaders of the Corps

The David Shingler Spell First and Second Honor Graduates are the cadets whose grade-point averages are the highest in each graduating class, based on the total college record of that class. Recipients of the awards receive a plaque and a stipend for educational expenses at the graduate level.

This year, two cadets tied for the prestigious title of First Honor Graduate: Cadets Steven Jones and Ashley Ruiz.

Jones is a Mechanical Engineering major from Anderson, South Carolina. He was part of The Citadel Honors Program, co-captain of the Pistol Team and selected as an All-American this year. Jones has accepted a position as a mechanical engineer with the Naval Air Systems Command, Fleet Readiness Center East, in Cherry Point, North Carolina, which plays an important role in our national defense and readiness. 

Ruiz is a double major in Political Science as well as Intelligence and Security Studies from Knoxville, Tennessee. She was presented the coveted Leidos Award as the best student in Intelligence and Security Studies, and was also a National Science Foundation CyberCorps Scholarship for Service recipient. In addition, Ruiz has held several important internships with NSA and the State Department in addition to participating in humanitarian relief work in Puerto Rico.

The Second Honor Graduate for the Class of 2022 is Cadet Joseph Roland, a Mechanical Engineering major from Gilbert, South Carolina who accepted a commission into the U.S. Navy. Roland was an active member of The Citadel Honors Program and served as the Third Battalion Academic Officer in his senior year. Upon graduation, Roland will begin his path as a Submarine Warfare Officer at the Nuclear Power School in Charleston, South Carolina.

Cadet Cody Green earns John O. Willson Ring

The Class of 2022 voted to award the John O. Willson Ring to Cadet Cody Green. Green is an Accounting major from Knoxville, Tennessee.

Because of his outstanding leadership abilities, Green was selected to serve as commander of Echo Company. Academically, Green is a distinguished military graduate and will enter the U.S. Marine Corps upon graduation.

The John O. Willson Ring has been awarded annually since 1911 to a senior elected by their peers as the finest, purest and most courteous member of the class.

Algernon Sydney Sullivan Awards presented to two dedicated scholars

During the awards convocation on Thursday, May 5, the Algernon Sydney Sullivan Awards were presented to Cadet Jaret Price and John Peeples, Ph.D. The awards are presented annually through the New York Southern Society to a student and faculty member in recognition of high thought and noble endeavor.

Cadet Jaret Price, an Exercise Science major from Aiken, South Carolina, served as the Sierra Company commander throughout his senior year. He is a member of Omicron Delta Kappa, a national leadership honor society, and serves as president of the Association of the United States Army Citadel Chapter. Price serves the surrounding Charleston community, volunteering off campus with multiple organizations; he has amassed over 250 hours of service through multiple volunteerism efforts, including feeding the homeless through Feed-A-Friend Friday program and the organization of a 110-flight stair climb to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

After graduating from The Citadel in 1970, John Peeples, Ph.D., has led a career characterized by serving others and making the world a better place by promoting the field of engineering. Peeples served his country in the U.S. Air Force and went on to earn his M.S. and Ph.D. in electrical engineering. He then had an illustrious, 30-year career in the computer industry before coming back to The Citadel to teach the next generation of engineers. For over 20 years, Peeples has inspired students and faculty as a professor and head of the department, instilling in his students a sense of the nobility and importance of engineering.

Grimsley Award for excellence presented to Director of the Honors program

Deirdre Ragan, Ph.D., a professor of Mechanical Engineering and Director of the Honors Program at The Citadel, received the James A. Grimsley Jr. Award for Undergraduate Teaching Excellence.

Ragan delivers excellence through her unwavering passion and commitment to students and her faith in the mission of The Citadel. Cadets and students remark on her level of knowledge regarding the subject matter, as well as her ability to teach and explain those topics. While challenging, her students appreciate her emphasis on reasoning through a problem and understanding the implications of a result.

This award, established 35 years ago, recognizes the outstanding performance by a member of the faculty in service to undergraduate students. The winner is chosen by the senior class from nominations by students and faculty members.

The Citadel nears victory in raising $200,000 for full scholarships to Ukrainian citizens https://today.citadel.edu/the-citadel-nears-victory-in-raising-200000-for-full-scholarships-to-ukrainian-citizens/ Mon, 09 May 2022 18:13:42 +0000 https://today.citadel.edu/?p=32170 As some parts of the world celebrate Victory Day, The Citadel community remains committed to supporting the pillars of democracy across the globe. In less than one week, The Citadel]]>

As some parts of the world celebrate Victory Day, The Citadel community remains committed to supporting the pillars of democracy across the globe.

In less than one week, The Citadel is more than 80% of the way to funding the $200,000 which will be used to provide Citadel educations to two Ukrainian citizens affected by the Russian invasion — and there is still time to give.

“As Russia celebrates Victory Day, we here at The Citadel are looking forward to celebrating our own victory day very soon,” said Gen. Glenn Walters, USMC (Ret.), ’79. “Through the generous donations from members and friends of The Citadel Family, we have nearly completed the challenge of raising $100,000. Once met, that number will be doubled and invested in the future leaders of Ukraine.”

Walters announced an anonymous donor’s matching gift to The Citadel Support for Ukraine Scholarship on May 3 — The Citadel Foundation’s fifth annual Giving Day.

Since then, donors have stepped forward to pledge more than $80,000 towards that effort.

“It will be an important day when we reach our fundraising goal,” Walters continued. “But what will be an even more important day is August 13, when two Ukrainian citizens step foot on campus to join the South Carolina Corps of Cadets. Coincidentally, these two Ukrainian cadets will also celebrate their nation’s independence day on August 24, just 11 days after beginning their education at The Citadel.”

In April, the college announced that it would offer two scholarships — covering full tuition, room, board and fees — to Ukrainian citizens affected by the Russian invasion.

Ukrainian citizens interested in applying for the scholarship should contact Dr. Kelly Brennan, associate provost of enrollment management, by email at admissions@citadel.edu.

The Citadel has committed to funding these scholarships. However, gifting is available to anyone wishing to support the effort or potentially allow for the scholarship to be expanded.

The Citadel Class of 2022 cadets and students sworn in as officers in the United States Armed Forces

The United States has 180 new officers, members of The Citadel Class of 2022. The cadets and students were sworn in Friday, May 6, during a joint commissioning ceremony on campus in McAlister Field House, joined by their friends and family.

Among the cadets accepting commissions were The Citadel’s first U.S. Space Force officers, Conor William Deans and Jack O. Schwartz. Three cadets will be serving their country in the military as nurses. Many of the new officers will serve in cybersecurity, intelligence, as aviators or unmanned aircraft systems operators, as engineers, in nuclear operations, as combat, and surface warfare officers and in a variety of other military leadership roles.

The Citadel truly does make you a better individual. It teaches you lessons you would not be able to learn anywhere else. Discipline, pride in self, humility and dedication are just a few of the things that are developed in young individuals who take on the challenge that is The Citadel. It creates a solid foundation for the future by challenging cadets to be the best version of themselves.
