1. A conversation about leadership

Each year cadets, visiting student delegates, Citadel faculty and leaders from many areas of society join on campus to explore what principled leadership looks like across a range of vocations. They come together for two days of intensive leadership learning during the annual Principled Leadership Symposium held by The Citadel’s Krause Center. In keeping with the 2019 symposium theme of Empowering Others & Building Bridges, Regimental Public Affairs Officer Logan Miller invited the President of The Citadel, Gen. Glenn M. Walters, to share his thoughts about leadership. Walters joined the college as president only five months earlier, and Miller wanted to help cadets and students to learn a little more about their president.

Here is that conversation with the 1979 alumnus who is now president.

2. As 2020 race starts in SC, can Beto O’Rourke hit the same sweet spot he did in 2018?
He almost ousted from office Republican U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, a top target of Democrats’ ire. He raised $6 million in his first 24 hours of running for president. And he’s capturing the attention of media and haters alike — from opposition articles criticizing his youthful indiscretions to a high-gloss spread in Vanity Fair timed with his announcing his campaign. Beto O’Rourke will touch down in South Carolina on Friday for his first presidential campaign swing through the Palmetto State. Knotts also said one factor could play to O’Rourke’s favor. “One thing that’s unique in South Carolina is that, without a Republican primary, you could see voters turn out in Mount Pleasant, Lexington, suburban Greenville, who don’t normally vote in Democratic primaries,” Knotts said. But Scott Buchanan, a political scientist at The Citadel, sees limited potential if O’Rourke’s appeal is limited to more upscale white voters. “That might play better in the Charleston area than it will in Orangeburg or Allendale,” Buchanan said. “Could Joe have won in the 3rd or 4th District? Not likely.”

3. Trans Day Of Visibility At CCU Designed To Bring Together Local And Trans Communities
A panel of guest speakers will raise awareness of and bring attention to the local and regional trans community as they hold an open discussion at Coastal Carolina University about their experiences and perspectives as trans individuals. Trans Day of Visibility will take place Thursday, March 28, at 7 p.m. in the Johnson Auditorium, organized by the Athenaeum Press, CCU's student-driven publishing lab; CCU's Arts and Humanities Global Experiences Program (AHGEP); and T-Time Myrtle Beach, an area trans support group. Students involved in the Athenaeum Press' current project, titled 'Trans Voices of the South,' will moderate the discussion and navigate the question/answer period afterward. The event is free and open to the public, and a reception will follow. The discussion will feature four panelists from the local community: Greg Green, Kevin David Rossi, Julie Singleton and Xan Lutsky. A native of South Carolina, Green graduated from the Citadel in 2006 and works in the trade industry at FedEx. He served as a moderator for a transgender support group at Garden of Grace United Church of Christ and has been on the board of South Carolina Equality as the chairman of the Trans Action Task Force. He is currently establishing a nonprofit to assist transgender individuals in securing name changes.
