Athletic cadre first to report back for Operation Fall Return 2020

About 30 of the South Carolina Corps of Cadet’s newest leaders arrived on campus July 23 and one-by-one, though muffled through masks, proudly said, “Good morning Sergeant Major,” in the First Battalion sally port.

“A lot of work went into this — a lot of planning,” said Capt. Geno Paluso, USN (Ret.), commandant of cadets. “But, in the end, we have a group of volunteer cadets that are going to be the athletic cadre, who will help us bring in almost 60 of the newest members of the Long Gray Line.”

Members of the athletic cadre returned to campus early to get special instruction on to train the incoming cadet-athlete recruits. Those knobs will arrive on campus July 29.

The athletic cadre’s arrival is a milestone in Operation Fall Return, an agile, conditions-based plan to safely return cadets and students to campus.

“It’s exciting to see what’s going to happen and how things will play out,” said Cadet Logan Braucht, a football player and Exercise Science major from Waycross, Georgia. “If any college can do it, it’s The Citadel. I’m excited to be able to have an impact on people around me and that’s something that I came here to learn — to be able to be a leader.”

Part of being a leader means embracing the changes necessary to keep everyone safe — like social distancing, wearing masks and new routines for entering and exiting the barracks.

But, despite all the things the COVID pandemic has changed, it hasn’t affected The Citadel’s model for developing principled leaders.

Athletic cadre members help incoming athlete-knobs learn and succeed in the Fourth-Class System, which represents the foundation of The Citadel’s signature four-year leadership development program. It creates discipline and instills the core values of honor, duty and respect.

“I think it’s important to develop leadership fundamentals early and properly, because the cadet recruits we are training will be teaching the next class and so on…” said Cadet Maddy Cardenas. “I think it’s important that we teach them the way that we’d like to be taught and the way that we want others to be taught behind us, as well.

Cardenas is a Mechanical Engineering major from Los Angeles, California, who plays volleyball for The Citadel.

“There are two things that we have to do. We have to deliver academics and we have to have a freshmen class — we have to have a knob class. You can’t break the The Citadel’s Long Gray Line,” continued Paluso. “This is the beginning of training the next generation of the Long Gray Line. Get them here. Get them trained. And, do it in a safe and efficient manner.”

“To come from having an early Recognition Day, to then being the first ones on campus, it’s definitely a different kind of experience than what I expected,” continued Braucht. “But I think it’s really going to help us have the mindset that that we need for the things we’re going to learn at The Citadel — to be able to overcome any obstacle.”

The full Class of 2024 arrives Aug. 8, with planned return of the upperclass cadets on Aug. 16.

The Citadel Tailor Shop steps up to help keep campus co-workers healthy Wed, 22 Apr 2020 21:59:08 +0000 The Tailor Shop would normally be busy right now with uniform needs for commencement. But with cadets away, the staff made a new way to help their community.]]>

The Citadel Tailor Shop would normally be inundated right now with uniform needs for commencement but with cadets away due to COVID-19, commencement will be virtual, thus many racks in the shop are empty.

Citadel President Gen. Glenn Walters picks up cloth face masks for he and his wife from the college’s tailor shop while visiting, from a distance, with shop assistant Tonie Veile. The Walters continue to live in their campus home during the pandemic.

The Citadel President, Gen. Glenn Walters saw an opportunity and asked the director of the tailor shop, Rick Gutierrez, if his team could make face masks.

Though cadets and students are away, there are still employees on campus who needed to keep facilities running and in shape, and they needed face masks to stay safe. The resounding answer from the tailor shop team: YES!

“It is satisfying to us to be able to help keep our coworkers on campus safe, ” said Gutierrez. “We have two seamstresses working on masks in the shop and one working from home. Our masks are made from 100% tight woven cotton, like a quilting cotton. The interfacing is R911 pellon that gets placed in between the two fabrics that gets sewn in along with the elastic that stretches out around the ears.”

Citadel cadets resurrect flying club to help address pilot shortage worldwide Fri, 11 Jan 2019 21:58:18 +0000 After almost four decades of dormancy, The Citadel Flying Club is operational again with about 240 members. ]]>

As seen on Live 5 News by Kaitlin Stansell

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) – The Citadel Flying Club has entered a new chapter to help address a looming shortage of military and commercial pilots.

The club was created in 1939 but dissolved in the 1970s.

Now, after almost four decades of dormancy, the club is operational again with about 240 members. Organizers hope the endeavor can give cadets at the military college a leg up in pursuing a career in aviation.

The club offers subsidized flight training to its members and hopes to award scholarships for cadets.

The club has purchased an old Citadel training center at the Charleston Executive Airport on Johns Island.

“We have a team of cadets that are going to go out there and paint it and make it kind of match Citadel colors and logo,” said Kirk Faris, the Citadel Flying Club’s president. “That’s where we are going to officially begin our official operations with more cadet flight training in February.”

Over the next two decades, almost 800,000 new pilots will be needed to fuel the aviation industry, according to the most recent projections from Boeing.

Faris hopes the flying club will help prepare cadets for future aviation careers.

“It’s definitely a wise idea for them to get involved with the club due to the subsidized flight training we offer through scholarships as well as our partnerships with local flight schools,” Faris said. “It’s definitely the best route to prepare you for the military or if you want to go commercial. It’s definitely the best route to get you in the door for aviation.”

The goal is for the club and its training initiatives to become self-sustaining.

Freshmen will learn to fly drones. Sophomores and juniors will take flight instruction, and seniors, who have undergone both levels of training, will become the instructors for fellow underclassmen.

The flying club’s scholarship program depends on donations.

Citadel changes grooming policy to match DOD standards Fri, 02 Nov 2018 17:33:56 +0000 The Citadel HaircutThe Citadel HaircutThe new policy follows Department of Defense standards and will improve the recruiting of women and give the Corps of Cadets a more professional look.]]> The Citadel HaircutThe Citadel Haircut

Citadel Commandant retired Navy Capt. Geno Paluso, ’89, is implementing a change to the current grooming guidelines outlined in the Blue Book. Under the new guidelines fourth-class male cadets will get one initial fourth-class haircut at matriculation. After the initial haircut, they will follow existing upper-class haircut standards. Fourth-class female cadets will follow U.S. Army standards and will not be required to cut their hair at matriculation. These changes will go into effect in the 2019-2020 academic year.

The new policy follows Department of Defense standards and will improve the recruiting of women and give the Corps of Cadets a more professional look.

“I spent 25 years in the Navy,” said Paluso, “and I don’t think The Citadel should have a stricter grooming standard than the Department of Defense—the very people defending our nation, our freedom and our right to have this institution.”

In the 1997 Blue Book the male haircut regulation changed from one initial freshman-standard haircut to a yearlong freshman-standard haircut. The return to pre-1997 regulations means a cost savings and an improvement in the quality of life for cadets.

Paluso remembers his own freshman haircut in 1985. “We were all in a race to see who would be the first one to part his hair,” Paluso said.

In July 1996 before the first group of women entered The Citadel, the Board of Visitors approved a policy that said that women cadets must have “a distinctive haircut.” For fourth-class women that haircut was a pixie-style haircut. Upper-class females were allowed to have slightly longer hair that could not touch the top of their dress blouse. In the 2008-2009 academic year, the regulations changed to allow upper-class women to have long hair worn in a bun that met the Department of Defense grooming standards.

The new standard for upper-class women, however, meant that sophomore women growing their hair out have an unruly mop that requires a lot of attention and a lot of bobby pins.

“Good for the women who were willing to come here and cut their hair, but the haircuts just look bad,” said Paluso.

A look back at cadet regulations from 1849 shows that hair standards were essentially unchanged for almost a hundred years. There was no fourth-class haircut. Regulations prohibited long hair, mustaches and whiskers. In 1956, the regulations changed to prohibit sideburns, and it was not until the 1960s that the buzz cut was given to freshmen cadets. It was at this same time that the freshman moniker “knob” began to replace the terms “plebe” and “rat.”

Gen. Glenn M. Walters, ’79, who served as assistant commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps before he became in the 20th president of The Citadel in October, is very familiar with Department of Defense standards.

“I support Capt. Paluso’s decision wholeheartedly,” said Walters. “In fact, I asked him to make the change as soon as possible. To be competitive as a college, we need to be current, and hairstyles should not define who we are.”

Civic service continues as cadets and students study abroad Fri, 05 Oct 2018 15:31:07 +0000 JoAnna WinbornJoAnna WinbornCitadel cadets and students are continuing their commitment to civic service as they travel abroad.]]> JoAnna WinbornJoAnna Winborn

Citadel cadets and students are continuing their commitment to civic service as they travel abroad.

In September, cadets studying in Cyprus volunteered at American Sports Day at the University of Nicosia (UNIC), the school that they are attending while abroad. The event, which was sponsored by the American Center of UNIC and the U.S. Embassy in Nicosia, brought local children of all ages to the college campus to play and learn about sports that are popular in America.

The 11 Citadel volunteers helped teach skills related to sports such as football, soccer, baseball, table tennis and miniature golf. Volunteers included Dr. Terry Mays, professor in The Citadel Department of Political Science and coordinator of the study abroad trip, as well as:

  • Michael Austin Bobel
  • Taurus Brown
  • Garrett Christie
  • Marshall McKee
  • Brandon Shively
  • Zion Smith
  • Daniel Wentley
  • Andrew Williams
  • JoAnna Winborn
  • Samuel Zuschlag

Attendees of the event included U.S. Ambassador Kathleen Doherty and U.N. Secretary General Representative Elizabeth Spehar.

“This program was a great cultural experience for our cadets,” said Mays. “It was an opportunity for the cadets to meet younger Cypriots and show them different techniques used in American sports. It was also a great way for the Cypriots to learn more about the U.S. through personal interactions with us and other volunteers.”

Serving others, developing leaders

Through the creation and completion of a six-year strategic plan titled LEAD 2018, the Krause Center for Leadership and Ethics was established and service learning was incorporated into all four years of the cadet experience. Last academic year, the South Carolina Corps of Cadets provided almost 20,000 hours of volunteer service to the community.

Members of The Citadel community volunteer on a regular basis with more than 30 local partners such as the City of Charleston Recreation DepartmentCharleston County School District and Habitat for Humanity. Additionally, cadets and students participate collectively in service learning and civic engagement during The Citadel’s annual Leadership Day, which will occur on October 17 this fall.

Miller Ford Futures

Thanks to a range of education, training and tuition programs, when you commit to serve, the Military commits to supporting your future

Army National Guard Cadet Miller Ford knew from a young age that he wanted to join the Military, but he didn’t realize it could also help him pay for his education. Miller is a junior at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina, but when he arrived, a college degree wasn’t his only ambition.

“Going into the Military was definitely a goal of mine,” he says. The Tennessee native joined the South Carolina National Guard and now drills one weekend a month on campus with fellow students while balancing schoolwork and spending time with friends. And the Army National Guard is helping him pay for what would’ve been an expensive out-of-state tuition, providing immense financial relief.

“I don’t have to worry about graduating in $200,000 worth of debt,” Miller says. “It’s taken a huge stressor off my life and my parents’ lives. Being able to get out and have one less thing to worry about has been essential for me, honestly, and it’s allowed me to focus on other things.”

I just love the idea of being a superhero,” says Alejandra Cepeda, a New York City–based nursing student who serves part time as a firefighter in the Air National Guard.

Alejandra Cepeda Futures Magazine“What I wanted to do since I was little was anything pertaining to helping people,” she says. Shortly after completing Air Force Basic Military Training, Alejandra found her calling by becoming the first female firefighter in her squadron’s history. She’s as proud of this as she is of the impact she’s had on others.

“It’s really fulfilling for me, knowing that I’m making a difference in someone’s life,” she says.

Whether she’s serving part time as a firefighter or studying to become a nurse, Alejandra enjoys being able to help others while serving close to home. “I like the closeness to home,” she says. “I like to be able to have a life with my close family, in addition to having this side of life where I am out and traveling with the Guard. It’s the best of both worlds.”

In a few years, when she finishes her nursing degree, she hopes to commission as an officer in the active-duty Air Force and become a flight nurse full time. This is a testament to the impact her part-time military service has had on her. With the skills she’s gained in her nursing classes and out in the field fighting fires, there’s no doubt she’ll find success in the coming years as she commits to serving her country full time.

You can be a pilot! You can be a pilot!”

That’s what Reily Finnelly wishes she could tell every young girl across the country. In a field dominated by men, in both the Military and the civilian
world, Reily’s part of a smaller pool of female pilots she hopes will continue to grow in the coming years. “People just don’t think that women can be pilots,” she says. “That’s the biggest misconception. In reality, anybody can do it.”

Reily Finnelly Futures MagazineReily comes from a long line of pilots. Two of her uncles fly for commercial airlines, just like her grandfather did before them. But it wasn’t until late in college that she decided to follow their lead, first by getting her civilian pilot license, and later when she decided to join the Air Force Reserve.

Now Reily has the opportunity to fly all over the world, including places like Hawaii, Germany, Japan and South Korea. “I operate the C-17 aircraft, and we are focused on air mobility: moving cargo and people, wherever they need to go throughout the world, safely and efficiently.” “Cargo” can be anything from vehicles and equipment to medical evacuation patients. The fact that she has the ability to travel all over never gets old. “I’ve had days
where I’ve woken up in Spain where it’s 85 degrees out,” Reily says, “and then flown to a place like Iceland where it’s 10 degrees. Being able to experience different cultures is definitely a rewarding part of the job.”

Reily likes to think she has the best of both worlds, being a pilot in the Reserve, traveling to all these amazing places, while still knowing she’ll always be able to call the Seattle area home. When she’s not airborne on one of her monthly training missions as part of the Reserve, you can usually find
her in the mountains of Washington with friends and family or putting in time at her local CrossFit gym. In the coming months, she plans to start flying for one of the major commercial airlines, so if you’re ever on a flight out of Seattle, be sure to take a peek and see if Reily’s in the cockpit.

“I want to get my hands in there and guide people the right way,” says Paige Herbst, Army National Guard cadet. While she’s a natural leader, she admits she had a little help. “I’d say that’s who I am, but more so, the Military definitely brought it out in me,” she says.

Paige Herbst FuturesIn high school, Paige participated in Junior ROTC and enjoyed it so much that she joined the Army National Guard after high school graduation. Now she balances college classes and being a varsity athlete at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina, with serving part time. During her monthly drill weekends and annual training, she leads a platoon of 40 Soldiers in practice and by example. “I’m very positive around all my Soldiers and I strive to make everyone better, as well as myself, so that way I can learn and grow to be a better person,” Paige says.

During one particularly memorable training mission, her platoon hiked 25 miles a day, with Paige right there guiding them. One of her Soldiers thanked her for her hands-on leadership approach. “That was a proud internal moment,” she says. “I was out there with my Soldiers, getting dirty, getting things done, doing what we have to do to serve the state.”

First woman to lead Citadel’s cadets says academy has changed “180 degrees” for women Sat, 15 Sep 2018 12:58:46 +0000 Sarah Zorn Feature CBSSarah Zorn Feature CBSSarah Zorn might be a historical first but in her mind, what is first, are her fellow cadets.]]> Sarah Zorn Feature CBSSarah Zorn Feature CBS

As seen in CBS This Morning

In our series, Profiles in Service, we spotlight Americans who dedicate their lives to helping others.”CBS This Morning” co-host Norah O’Donnell speaks with the first woman to lead the corps of cadets at The Citadel. The South Carolina military college first allowed women to join the corps in 1995 under federal court order. Women now make up about nine percent of the undergraduate student body and that number continues to grow.  At the helm of the more than 2,300 cadets is senior Sarah Zorn.

Sarah Zorn might be a historical first but in her mind, what is first, are her fellow cadets.

“I didn’t want to do it because I wanted to be this ‘shatterer of glass ceilings’ or things like that. I wanted to provide the best opportunity to leave the corps better for tomorrow,” Zorn said.

She grew up in a small South Carolina town, in a “give the shirt off your back” kind of household. The selflessness and determination she developed carried her to The Citadel.

“I’m proud to have that title and I’m humbled to have that title but I always try to keep in the back of my mind that it’s not about what I am, it’s about what I do,” Zorn said. “Service to me is selfless….to be a servant leader is to put others’ needs before your own. I personally believe that servant leadership is the only successful leadership because no matter your decision, you are making decisions as a leader on behalf of others.”

It’s that very kind of focus that’s earned Zorn respect, but she did face some initial resistance from the long gray line.

“There was a small amount of cadets who were questioning what she would do simply because she was a woman, not because of her merit,” said regimental executive officer David Days. “But I think as we’ve progressed throughout from last spring until now, more and more people have gotten behind her.”

And yet, Zorn’s rise to top cadet is remarkable given that a little more than 20 years ago, she wouldn’t have even been welcome in the corps. After a legal battle, Shannon Faulkner won the right to become the first woman to attend The Citadel. She left after five days.

Asked if women are treated equally there, Zorn said, “Yes. I would definitely say so.” Though she admits that wasn’t always the case.

“There is a long and lengthy history of the struggles that women felt here, but I feel like we’ve come, you know, 180 degrees from where we were 20 years ago,” Zorn said.

Each day begins at 5 a.m. with a full course load, regimental commander duties, and workouts – sometimes twice a day. Zorn performs at the very top of the corps in physical fitness and can do 65 push-ups in two minutes, which is more than three times the minimum for women.

She’s also been training in karate since she was 10 and holds three black belts. Martial arts, she says, teaches her patience and self-discipline. Her karate teacher has said she’s the most motivated person he’s ever met.

“Motivation is a desire not to disappoint…You don’t want to disappoint yourself because you realize what you’re capable of,” Zorn said.

Zorn gets her mental toughness from her mother, who died when Sarah was 16. She credits her mom, an Air Force veteran, for instilling in her a strong sense of patriotism.

“I hope to be a person of service, empathy, kindness because I think those are some of the fundamental things that people need in this world right now. A little more leadership, a little more empathy and understanding,” Zorn said.

After graduation, Zorn will serve in the U.S. Army for at least five years. She wants to become a military intelligence officer and hopes to spend her career in the army. Right now, with Hurricane Florence approaching, The Citadel has been evacuated.  Zorn took several out-of-state cadets home with her to safety.
