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.

4. Harrell embraces culture as new KSU defensive coordinator
New Kennesaw State defensive coordinator Blake Harrell said the culture the Owls had developed was a big reason he wanted to join the program. “The type of people on the staff are the ones that are going to push you,” Harrell said. “They are going to make you a better coach.” Considering Harrell came from The Citadel, a military college in Charleston, South Carolina, it is a strong statement to make. Last season, The Citadel held five opponents to fewer than 100 rushing yards and led the Southern Conference in first-down defense, ranking 35th in the FCS. Newberry liked to stress the defense getting three turnovers per game, and that was an area in which that Harrell’s defenses thrived. The Citadel forced a combined 83 turnovers over the last four years, including 31 in 2015 to rank third in the FCS. During that time, the Bulldogs won back-to-back Southern Conference championships and earned the No. 6 seed in the 2016 FCS playoffs.

5. VMI Baseball: Keydets open SoCon play this weekend at The Citadel
The VMI baseball team opens Southern Conference play this weekend at The Citadel, with single games Friday (6 p.m.), Saturday (2 p.m.) and Sunday (1 p.m.). The Keydets finished the conference slate 12-12 in 2018, finishing fourth in the league. VMI took two of three from the Bulldogs in Lexington, Va. last spring, winning the two contests by a combined score of 24-7. Projected Sunday starter Zak Kent was named the Southern Conference’s Pitcher of the Week for the week of March 18. He tied a school record last Sunday as the VMI baseball team defeated visiting Lehigh University 11-1 in non-conference play. The junior right-hander struck out 15 batters, tying the program record for strikeouts in a single game in the aluminum bat era (a mark set in 1998). Kent is tied for ninth in D1 with 46 strikeouts and tied for eighth with one complete game. He is tied for 18th in strikeouts per nine innings (13.50). For the season, Kent has a 2-2 record with a 4.11 ERA and opponents are hitting just .174 against him. The Citadel (7-14 this season) owns an 82-33 all-time series record against VMI (4-16 in 2019).

1. Citadel steps up to host memorial gathering for Vietnam veterans
The annual memorial usually takes place onboard the USS Hué City, the only U.S. Navy ship named after a battle in the Vietnam War When the namesake ship was unable to make it to Charleston Harbor, nearly 30 Marine veterans from the Battle of Hué were left without a place to meet for their annual reunion. Until The Citadel stepped in to help. The Citadel Board of Visitors member Col. Myron Harrington is also a veteran of the Battle of Hué, which was one of the longest battles of the Vietnam War.

3. After graduating from Citadel, couple takes on new challenge together in boxing ring
Rico Gabriel couldn’t stop shaking as he stepped through the ropes and into the boxing ring. Neither could his girlfriend, Mary Ann Koller, as she did the same. Gabriel and Koller, both Citadel graduates, have been sparring for months at American Top Team Lowcountry in Charleston. But at a Golden Gloves boxing tournament in Greer last month, both made their debuts in an official amateur boxing event. “My adrenaline was worked up hours before the fight,” Gabriel remembered. “It’s so much different when there’s a crowd watching.” Both fighters rose to the challenge, said Isaac Betancourt-Sabillon, their coach at ATT Lowcountry. Gabriel beat his opponent in the 141-pound division. His victory in the state tournament, which is sanctioned by USA Boxing, earned him a bid to the regionals next month in Knoxville.

4. Lorain High School honors JROTC cadets
Lorain High School Junior ROTC cadets received awards for strong performances in sports, academics and military drill from recent weeks. Col. Tarn Warren and Sgt. First Class Christopher Simon presented the honors March 20 in a ceremony at the High School. The event was a precursor to the JROTC’s annual award ceremony in April. But the early recognition was timely for the program’s Drill, Academic and Raider teams, Simon said. The group also heard from Lorain High senior Cadet Samuel Dandrea, a senior who was accepted to the Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina. Dandrea plans to study history and later serve in the Marine Corps, like his older brother, Marcus, who now lives in Virginia. Dandrea thanked his commanding instructors and fellow cadets, along with his teachers and the school administrators. “It wouldn’t be possible without this program or without the people in this school,” he said. “I’m really thankful for all of you.” It was cool to see some of the young cadets get their first medals, he said. Dandrea added he will return to visit.

2. South Carolina Politics Consider A Ban On Plastic’s Ban
Something to know before visiting the Statehouse in Columbia; water from the drinking fountain contains microplastics. The National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration defines the substance as any plastic debris smaller than 5 mm (about the size of sesame seed, they say). Dr. John Weinstein, Chair of the Biology Department and Professor of Physiology at The Citadel said during a phone call on March 8, he was probably the only person who wasn’t surprised by the findings in a study he administered for The Citadel. “What around us isn’t made of synthetic materials? Everything is wrapped in plastic. Tires are made of rubber and plastic elastomers that deposit on roads and wash into Charleston harbor with every rain… [Microplastics] are everywhere we’ve ever looked; in the air, Acrtic ice, on mountain tops, beer, table salt and in water,” said Weinstein. Weinstein first started looking in earnest when studying the effects of microplastics in Charleston’s own back yard was added to his bailiwick in 2013.

3. Slow News, the documentary

In recent years, without knowing each other and without necessarily having a common philosophical reasoning at the base, journalists and journalists all over the world have created slow journalism projects thinking about the sustainability of their work, about community building and the need get out of the chaotic and meaningless flow of a journalism in full crisis. Some of their names are Peter Laufer , Lea Korsgaard , Rob Orchard , Jennifer Rauch , John De Mauro , Frédéric Martel , Helen Boaden , Alison T. Smith . And their are projects of all kinds: books, printed magazines, digital publications, ebooks, podcasts, newsletters or even simply declarations of intent and hope. It is the story of the birth of an international movement of free and autonomous journalists, a story that began years ago and is still taking place. A story that, since December 1916, together with IK Produzioni, we decided that it had to be told. This is how the documentary project was born. For now it's called Slow News. A documentary and it is in this moment (autumn-winter 2018) is in production phase.

Citadel professor, Dr. Alison Smith, was interviewed in and around Trento, Italy, as part of a forthcoming documentary on the Slow News movement. The article is in Italian, and contains a link to a Huffington Post article written by Dr. Smith.

4. Clarity on Diversity and Pluralism

Freedom and the free society are once again under direct attack by those who espouse far-greater degrees of government control over people’s lives. Wrapping themselves in the cloak of progressivism, “social justice,” and liberation from oppression and discrimination, they use a lexicon of words that are designed to reflect their view of and desires for the world: diversity, inclusiveness, participatory democracy, pluralism, and peace. But in reality, the only social system able to deliver on these goals is free market liberalism. To understand this, it is necessary to begin with first principles about human beings and the nature and workings of the social world. Social-democratic activists have as their starting premise the idea that society is composed of elementary groups or collectives, with these defining and determining the facts and fate of everyone in society.

Richard M. Ebeling, an AIER Senior Fellow, is the BB&T Distinguished Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel, in Charleston, South Carolina. Ebeling lived on AIER's campus from 2008 to 2009.

1c. Tire particles found in Charleston waterways, researchers say
From bags to bottles, cars and clothing, plastic is truly the fabric of our lives. Most people see some form of plastic pollution every day like water bottles or single-use straws, but it’s the plastic we don’t see that’s a larger concern. About five years ago, researchers at the Citadel and College of Charleston began looking into microplastics around the Charleston Harbor and made a new discovery. Dr. John Weinstein, head of the biology department at the Citadel, leads the research. Weinstein said from that study, they found two interesting things. “We found Daniel Island had some of the highest levels that were being reported and we were also finding that the majority of the particles that were being reported were black particles,” said Weinstein. “We did chemistry on them and we found that they are composed of carbon-black and polybutadiene which are charred components of tires.”

2a. Inauguration of Gen. Glenn M. Walters as 20th President of The Citadel on April 5th
Gen. Glenn M. Walters, (Ret.) USMC, a member of The Citadel Class of 1979, assumed his responsibilities as President of The Citadel in October 2018. Forty-three years ago, he reported to the college for matriculation. “I was a 128-pound skinny little thing when I got down here. When I graduated, I was 170 pounds. I was playing lacrosse, something I had never done. I was commissioned into the Marine Corps, and I had a degree in electrical engineering,” Walters recalled. At the age of 18, he had already traveled the world—Pakistan, Cyprus, Greece, India, Japan—yet it was at the Military College of South Carolina that he put down roots and began the transformation from a boy who dreamed of becoming a military officer to a young Marine destined for success.

A new location, The Citadel, and a new format, Regionals and State, did not deter the budding scientists from their appointed round with greatness. Having fewer than twenty students (for the first time in well over a decade) on the team did not dim their commitment or pursuit of excellence. Science Olympiad is a marathon, not a sprint, and most students just don’t have the intestinal fortitude or ability to defer gratification for such high stakes, mental marathons. Not these CMS students! Not this CMS team! Not this time! Surrounded by an awesome array of coaches and mentors, this year’s team excelled in an unprecedented fashion.

As UNG celebrates Women's History Month in March, it also holds the distinction of being the first senior military college in the nation to accept women into the Corps of Cadets. On Sept. 16, 1973, four days ahead of Virginia Tech, three women entered UNG's Corps: Jean Raines, Susan Harris and Janet Walls. Norwich and Texas A&M accepted women in their Corps in 1974, while the Citadel and VMI followed in 1995 and 1997, respectively, after court challenges.

The coach’s 80-25 career record includes a 14-11 mark in two years at The Citadel, a military-based Football Championship Subdivision school.

The Citadel’s College Democrats? It has 50 members — or barely enough to defend a voting precinct. But the more important trend is that number has grown from just two interested cadets before the club got its start in September. Heading into 2020, the minority of Democratic Party-aligned students on this conservative Charleston campus have their sights set on raising their profile.
