Though “art” and “The Citadel” have not often been said in the same sentence, Tiffany Reed Silverman is changing the conversation. In 2013, the Beaufort-born “military brat” became the director of The Citadel’s fine arts program—the first full-time fine arts faculty member in the school’s history. A former College of Charleston adjunct professor and Gibbes Museum director of education, she launched a fine arts minor, club, and website.

Phony label (letter to the editor)
After learning that Ted Cruz would be appearing at The Citadel for something called the 8th Annual Free Enterprise Foundation Dinner, I attempted to learn more about this organization called the "Free Enterprise Foundation." Apparently, it is a tax-exempt organization that pretends to be grassroots but is actually funded by David Koch and Americans for Prosperity. It seems they get their tax-exempt status by calling themselves educators. They are actually housed at The Citadel.

The House cut funding for a summer reading program to protest the book's selection. Mr. Grooms stated that putting on the play as a protest move "is not wise" and he plans to bring it up as the Senate debates this year's budget. "If lessons weren't learned over there ... the Senate would have great interest in fixing the deficiencies at the C of C." Just what lessons should be learned? Only art that reflects your politics is allowed? What deficiencies need fixing? I haven't heard him threaten The Citadel's budget for speakers who are overwhelmingly conservative.

Step into The Citadel’s campus bookstore and you’ll find books written by Republican U.S. Senate candidates Bill Connor and Nancy Mace. And neither one is getting a product placement advantage over the other, as their accounts are placed side-by-side on a table near the cash register. Mace, Class of ’99, wrote “In the Company of Men” about her experiences as the Corps of Cadets’ first female graduate. Connor, Class of ’90, published “Articles from War,” about his time as a combat veteran in Afghanistan. The two are among the six Republicans challenging U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham in the June Republican primary. Mace’s book retails for $12.99; Connor’s $12.95

Citadel AD rumors go public
The rumors circulating the last few weeks within The Citadel athletic department about the future of athletic director Larry Leckonby went public this weekend. A Clemson website called The Clemson Insider published this story calling Tigers associate AD Bill D’Andrea “the leading candidate to become the new athletic director at The Citadel.” That’s kind of awkward, since Leckonby still is The Citadel’s AD. But it has been rumored for weeks that he could be on the move after six years at The Citadel (he was hired in June of 2008). Rumor has Leckonby accepting a senior associate AD job at North Carolina State, where he would work for AD Debbie Yow, his former boss at Maryland.

Marlene O’Bryant-Seabrook, former professor of education at The Citadel, recalled the promise of Reconstruction and the successful efforts to undo it. Lucille Whipper, a former state legislator, spoke critically of efforts to gerrymander voting districts, especially in the South, a strategy that has exacerbated political divisions.

On eve of memoir, SC Democrat says SC is ‘retrogressing in so many ways’
At the Human Affairs Commission, Clyburn was dogged by what he calls the “Four C’s” – a 1979 Chester County hit-and-run accident that was thought to be motivated by race; a 1986 Ku Klux Klan incident at The Citadel that made national headlines; a 1989 controversy over the replacement of Conway High School’s black quarterback; and the fight over removing the Confederate battle flag from the State House dome. “Conway and The Citadel – those two incidents were probably my most uncomfortable periods of time at that agency,” Clyburn recalled.

The last day of peace in Afghanistan

Dr. Bill Newton, graduate of The Citadel and MUSC, retired US Army colonel who served in Vietnam, and now a resident of Southern Pines, N.C., spoke to the Greater Piedmont Chapter of The Explorers Club April 11. His skills in plastic and reconstructive surgery have taken him to many developing countries.

His presentation was on a CARE/MEDICO mission to Afghanistan in 1978. That was a year of war and chaos that ended the Afghan Golden Age and allowed the Soviet Union to invade the country. Dr. Newton’s purpose, known as Operation Smile, was to perform corrective surgery on those disfigured by the increasing hostility.

How Would Southerners Describe the South to Outsiders?

Some of my political science colleagues recently reported the results of such hypothetical conversations at the Citadel Symposium on Southern Politics in Charleston, SC. Scott H. Huffmon and Allie Briggs (both of Winthrop University) and Christopher N. Lawrence (Middle George State College) conducted a study among South Carolinians. In April, 2013, as part of the Winthrop Poll series, interviewers asked for responses to the following probe: "Imagine that you had to describe the South to someone who had never been to a Southern state in America in just two words or two very short phrases." The co-authors then coded the responses for substantive analysis.

Faulty data (letter to the editor by Citadel professor Tim Mays)

In response to Dr. Rob Young's March 29 commentary on the Wave Dissipation System, my typical reaction to a commentary like this would be to simply let it go and let readers recognize it for the merit it contains or lacks.  However, I feel ethically obligated to at least point out some errors contained in the original commentary by Dr. Rob Young that the common reader would never know about otherwise.

NerdScholar Favorites: ROTC Programs

The Citadel, The Military College of South CarolinaMost Immersive

The Citadel’s location in Charleston positions students for a truly immersive military experience. “Charleston’s proximity to so many Navy and Marine Corps facilities, such as Navy Nuclear Propulsion Training Command, Naval Base Mayport, Naval Base King’s Bay, Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort, Marine Corp Recruit Depot Parris Island, and SPAWAR makes the learning opportunities unmatched,” says Brendan Schaaf, a senior naval instructor. The Citadel’s Army ROTC unit, Palmetto Battalion, consists of 1,470 students who attend college at The Citadel and at schools across South Carolina’s coastal region. Add in The Citadel’s additional ROTC branches—Air Force, Marines, and Navy—and the number climbs to 2,344. The Citadel produces the second-highest number of Army commissioned officers, trailing only the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. Roughly 60% of The Citadel’s alumni are veterans.

Scholarships: The Citadel awards more than $3 million dollars annually to entering freshmen and enrolled upperclassmen, including 25 full academic scholarships. Freshmen are automatically considered for scholarships, while upper-class cadets must complete a separate application.
