1. Civic engagement and events highlight Citadel's 2016 Leadership Day
The members of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets study leadership and ethics in the classroom operate a leadership laboratory where they manage the undergraduate student body of The Citadel throughout the school year. On Oct. 19, they dedicated the entire day to service learning, leadership and ethics by performing community service, shadowing business leaders or attending ethics training as part of Leadership Day 2016. Over 1,200 cadets spread over the Lowcountry, with sophomores leading freshmen, to participate in service projects including STEM and literacy classroom activities, cleaning up parks, and preparing and delivering meals. Junior cadets attended a full-day ethics seminar and seniors spent the day listening to business leaders from the Charleston area including Boeing South Carolina, Google Charleston, Hollings Marine Laboratory, the Medical University of South Carolina, and SCANA/SCE&G. Soldiers' Angels, a mobile food pantry that feeds veterans, joined a partnership with the cadets for the first time this year. They will join the Cadets once a month to run a food pantry on the Citadel campus.
