Cadets from across the country fly high in banner for The Citadel
Some of the first faces visitors to Charleston International Airport see belong to six smiling cadets. They are featured as part of a marketing campaign highlighting the college’s diverse student body, breadth of career paths, and robust selection of activities and programs. All six cadets also come from cities that have direct flights to Charleston International Airport.
The prominently placed banners align with a corresponding video and website program titled “Our Mighty Citadel,” which also features two of the cadets included on the banners: Logan Miller and Rene Valentine. Our Mighty Citadel stories take on common themes of perseverance, camaraderie, service and transformation – attributes that make the college unique.
