Dean's Monthly Message

The Citadel held its Ninth Annual Principled Leadership Symposium March 17 and 18 and it was a great success, as anyone who attended will attest. Governor Nikki Haley kicked it off with a very moving speech on the tragic events of 2015 in the Charleston area, starting with the shooting of Walter Scott in North Charleston, then the Mother Emanuel Church shootings, and finally the “thousand-year flood” of October.  In each case, Charleston showed how special it is.  In the cases of the shootings, there was no violence, as we have seen in other communities.  Rather, led by the families of the victims, the community rose up, not to set fires and loot, but to embrace each other to express solidarity and support, including a 20,000 person unity rally across the Ravenel Bridge.
