1. American Infrastructure: Big Ideas From Visionary Thinkers
TIME asked leading designers, entrepreneurs, architects and other big thinkers to share their great hope for American infrastructure. They came back with plans for today — and moonshots for tomorrow. Revamp infrastructure development as we know it because communities are changing faster than ever. Everyone from hardworking engineers to community planners to our elected leaders must work across their disciplines to make investments that consider future risk and leverage the power of mother-nature by deploying nature-based solutions alongside the built environment. For example, wetlands support wildlife habitats and act as important buffers to preserve life and property during tropical storms, providing billions of dollars in storm protection. Unfortunately the U.S. lost more than 360,000 acres of wetlands in coastal watersheds from 2004 to 2009. Strengthening coastal ecosystems like salt marshes, wetlands and mangroves by protecting existing natural areas and restoring degraded habitat is particularly beneficial to vulnerable communities. These projects can bring economic and human benefits that are long-lasting and create more livable and prepared communities. Riley, a professor at The Citadel, was mayor of Charleston, S.C. from 1975-2016

1. More than 19 million reasons why the Bridge Run's impact on Charleston is felt for more than just one day
The Cooper River Bridge Run was originally created with the goal of improving the health and fitness of people living in the Charleston area. Most would agree that it has exceeded those goals, while others may say its economic impact now trumps its wellness effort. According to a survey conducted in 2016 by The Citadel’s Dr. Harry Davakos, a former Bridge Run board member, the direct economic impact of the event was $19.2 million (hotels, restaurants, stores) and its total impact was $29.6 million. Former Charleston Mayor Joseph P. Riley Jr., a supporter of the Bridge Run since its inception, said the Bridge Run “ranks among the most prominent and important events in the community each year.” “As the Bridge Run developed into a world class event, that process involved everyone — cities, the county, businesses, nonprofits and all those volunteers. Everyone was engaged, just like Spoleto and the other major festivals,” said Riley, adding that the community “upped its game.” “Then there was the economic impact, which no one foresaw at all. It has been so surprising that it got as big as it is. The economic energy of all those people coming. It’s really had an enormous positive impact on the city and the region.”

1. CCSD Math Teachers Apply for Free Professional Development Program at The Citadel
The Citadel STEM Center of Excellence is working side by side with the Charleston County School District to improve the quality of STEM education in the Lowcountry, and now particularly with regard to mathematics. A grant-funded program will prepare high school mathematics teachers with a new focus on mathematics literacy ─ how students read and understand math ─ rather than just teaching calculations and formulas. Up to 30 educators will be selected to participate in the program, entitled “Promoting problem solving and sense making: engaging teachers in the mathematical process.” Applications are being accepted now through April 14. “As teachers, we often focus on the specific content of mathematics – the calculations, and assume that by doing so students will gain knowledge about the wider discipline of mathematics as a sort of by-product,” said Jennifer Albert, Ph.D., The Citadel STEM Center of Excellence director. “However, studies underscore the importance of explicitly teaching the fundamentals of how mathematicians communicate in order to solve novel problems and present mathematical arguments. Our program will do just that.”

2. Last remaining S.C. member of 1st Special Service Force to present ROTC award
The Citadel works, above all else, to educate and develop principled leaders. Approximately one-third of the young leaders graduating from The Citadel each spring leave to become officers in every branch of U.S. military service. However, before they can graduate and commission, they must successfully complete four years of ROTC training. Cadets who demonstrate excellence in carrying out their ROTC commitments will be honored during a ceremony at 11 a.m., March 23, at McAlister Field House on campus. More than 100 cadets will receive awards from over 35 organizations. Among the cadets being recognized is Cadet Neil Bultman, a senior political science major from Walker, Michigan, who attends the college on an Army ROTC scholarship. Bultman will receive the Maj. Gen. Robert Frederick Leadership Award. “It is a tremendous honor to receive this award. The history of Maj. Gen. Robert Frederick and the 1st Special Service Force is legendary, and I am thankful to receive the award named for such a great leader,” said Bultman.

3. Recruiting law enforcement officers a 24-7 job
Law enforcement agencies used to recruit when they needed new officers and deputies, but now it's a 24-7 activity, like fighting crime. Finding and hiring qualified people for law enforcement jobs got tougher over the past few years as the public perception of police took a hit, the job became more dangerous and the improved economy created competition from less stressful, higher-paying jobs. That left many coastal agencies searching for new ways to bring in police officers, sheriff's deputies and jail employees, and pushed them to ramp up their recruitment efforts. Ashley West, 23, a recruit in training for the North Charleston Police Department, said she didn't always know she wanted to be a police officer. "But since I was little, the signs were there," she said. "When a bike went missing, I was the one trying to find it." West, who is finishing a criminal justice degree at The Citadel, said her friends and fellow students understand and support her decision to become a police officer, but that's not the case with everyone in her life. Her mother and stepfather both work in emergency rooms, she said, and they worry about her getting hurt. And some of her childhood friends question why she would want to be a cop. "They see police as the oppressors," she said.

3.1 Richard Ashby Farrier Jr. '81
January 29, 1959 March 24, 2017 Richard Ashby Farrier Jr., 58, of Charleston, South Carolina, died Friday, March 24, 2017. He was born on January 29, 1959, in Staunton, Va. to the late Richard Ashby Farrier and Kitty Byrne Farrier. Richard graduated from The Citadel (1981) with a B.A. in history. He played offensive tackle and was a captain of the football team. He earned first-team All-Southern Conference honors as a senior and won the Joe Missar Trophy that signifies the team's best lineman. Richard was inducted into the Citadel Hall of Fame in 2010. He earned his Juris Doctorate from the University of South Carolina (1985). Richard was an equity partner and head of the South Carolina litigation department at global law firm, K&L Gates. He was a true titan in the South Carolina Bar, and was considered to be one of the finest trial lawyers in the country, as evidenced by his induction into the prestigious American College of Trial Lawyers, and the American Board of Trial Advocates, as well as his annual selection by peers, for inclusion in the Best Lawyers in America, and South Carolina Super Lawyers publications. The accomplishment for which he was most professionally proud, however, was his mentorship of numerous budding young trial lawyers throughout his 36 year legal career. He found great joy in participating as a Chairman of the City of Charleston Board of Architectural Review-Small, preserving the beauty of the city he loved. A vibrant man, Richard took the utmost pride in his family, friends, and most importantly, his sense of humor. He is survived by his mother, Kitty Farrier; his daughters, Hanna Farrier, Emily Fahl, and Lydia Farrier; his son, Mac Farrier; and his two sisters, Kathleen Carlton Farrier and Elizabeth Melshen. The Memorial Service will be at 11 a.m. Tuesday, March 28, 2017, at Mt. Pleasant Presbyterian Church, 302 Hibben Street, Mt.

1. More warships in the South China Sea: Testing the diplomatic waters
Reports last week said Japan will send a helicopter carrier into the hotly contested South China Sea in May. The carrier Izumo is based in Yokosuka and its mission is primarily anti-submarine warfare. Izumo will patrol the South China Sea and make several stops, including Singapore, Indonesia, and the Philippines. The carrier will eventually sail into the Indian Ocean to conduct joint naval exercises in July with India and the United States. Japan's decision to deploy Izumo is prudent and comes when the US and its allies in the region want to send a clear signal to Beijing: Freedom of navigation (FON) operations will not be disrupted. Japan and China do not hold competing claims in the South China Sea.

1.1 Engineering professor invents potentially lifesaving military technology
A Citadel professor who spends much of his time teaching engineering on campus, spends the remainder of his time working with a team of researchers at the U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) in Adelphi, Maryland. Gregory Mazzaro, Ph.D., is a faculty member in The Citadel’s Electrical Engineering Department. He is also a member of the Sensors & Electron Devices Directorate at ARL. Three of his recent inventions, created in conjunction with other ARL researchers, expand the Army’s capabilities for providing information to soldiers entering uncharted, and often dangerous, environments. The patents Mazzaro has acquired protect techniques for locating electronic devices, such as cell phones, from a distance by using a special type of radar. Such devices are normally located via linear or traditional radar, but when the electronics are low to the ground, at a distance, and possibly obscured by rocks or foliage they are difficult to locate. Mazzaro’s inventions include Multitone Harmonic Radar (U.S. patent #9,395,434), Cognitive Nonlinear Radar (U.S. patent #9,435,882), and Combined Radar Assembly with Linear and Nonlinear Radar (U. S. patent #9,476,973). They use an innovative form of “nonlinear” radar to recognize potentially-hazardous electronics remotely. ”Dr. Mazzaro’s research directly impacts the lives of American service members in combat zones by providing them the ability to detect threats triggered wirelessly,” said the Dean of The Citadel School of Engineering, Col. Ronald Welch, Ph.D., USA (ret.). “Exposure to his research is also of great benefit to our cadets and students on campus.” Mazzaro and his teammates at the ARL have been studying, building, and evaluating experimental nonlinear radars since 2010.

Charleston calling: 5 things to know before you go
A BIG, BIG BRIDGE RUN - The Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge spans the Cooper River, stands more than 570 feet high and covers more than 13,200 feet from downtown Charleston to Mount Pleasant. It’s the largest cable-stayed bridge in North America. And on April 1, you and several thousand of your closest friends can run across it. The annual Cooper Bridge Run began in 1978, easily outdating the Ravenel span, which opened in 2005. It’s one of the largest 10-kilometer races in the U.S., supports numerous local and national charities, and features a military presence – runners from Joint Base Charleston and ROTC units from The Citadel are regulars. Good to know: Oprah Winfrey entered the race in 1994 under an assumed name, according to an official race history. She finished 3,839th out of 7,355 official finishers.

Citadel coach on spring game: 'We're not very good right now'
Spring football at The Citadel has been as much about who's missing as about who's improving. That theme continued Friday night during the Bulldogs' Blue-White spring game at Johnson Hagood Stadium. Junior fullback Evan McField, heir apparent to All-American Tyler Renew, missed the spring game after suffering an injury this week. Citadel officials were tight-lipped about the extent of the injury. But it did not sound as if McField, a 6-0, 230-pounder from Goose Creek, would be back in action any time soon, including the final two practices of the spring next week.

2. "Pauper's field:" Digging deeper into history of bones unearthed in Charleston
Work has stopped on an important city improvement project on Fishburne Street in Charleston, after old bones were discovered there recently. Experts on underground artifacts are offering new insight into the site where the bones were found, and what property was used for more than a century ago. The bones were found beneath Burke High School's Harmon Field. Dr. Eric Poplin, an archaeologist with Charleston-based Brockington Cultural Resource Consultants, says Harmon Field sits atop an important chapter in Charleston's past. "This was part of a pauper's field the city operated, a cemetery where they buried poor people," said Poplin. "(It was for) people who didn't belong to a church or have a space in one of the private cemeteries."

2c. How Communism became the disease it tried to cure
The great German sociologist, Max Weber (1864-1920) offered an understanding of the evolution of socialist regimes in the twentieth century from revolutionary radicalism to a stagnant system of power, privilege and plunder, manned by self-interested Soviet socialist office holders. Max Weber, in his posthumously published monumental treatise, Economy and Society (1925), defined a charismatic leader as one who stands out from the ordinary mass of men because of an element in his personality viewed as containing exceptional powers and qualities. He is on a mission because he has been endowed with a particular intellectual spark that enables him to see what other men do not, to understand what the mass of his fellow men fail to comprehend.

2a. Local cadets named to Citadel Summerall Guards
Earning a position on The Citadel's Summerall Guards is among the highest honors a member of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets can attain. Each spring semester, after weeks of training and tryouts, 61 new guards are selected from more than 100 rising juniors for their physical stamina and drill proficiency. A rifle exchange ceremony held annually during Corps Day Weekend marks the beginning of service for the new platoon as the seniors who will soon graduate hand over their duties. This year the ceremony takes place March 18, on Summerall Field. The presentation is one of numerous events that will be held in succession for Corps and Recognition Day, bringing cadets' families, friends, alumni and community visitors to campus. The Summerall Guard is a silent precision drill platoon first formed more than 85 years ago. Through a unique series of movements based on the old military close-order drills, the Summerall Guard aspires to exemplify the precise and meticulous training of a Citadel cadet. The intricate movements of the drill are taught from one class to the next and have never been formally recorded. The platoon was named for Gen. Charles P. Summerall, former chief of staff of the U.S. Army and Citadel president from 1931 until 1953.

It was somewhere during the fifth inning - when The Citadel sent 15 batters to the plate and scored 12 runs on eight hits - that it all seemed to become a little unreal. "When we put up that 12 spot, I knew we had something going," said Bulldogs senior Barrett Charpia, reflecting on The Citadel's record-setting 34-8 win over Winthrop on Tuesday at Riley Park. "Stuff just started to fall in. I remember their first baseman said, 'Ya'll keep finding gaps and everything is falling in.' "By then, it seemed sort of surreal."

The Citadel exploded for 34 runs Tuesday night in a 34-8 blowout of Winthrop, the most runs scored in a Division I college game this season. The Bulldogs (5-10) topped the 32-run game that McNeese State had against Louisiana-Monroe on Feb. 21, and also found their way into The Citadel record books, scoring 38.6 percent of their runs so far this year in just eight innings. "You just can't question a game of baseball," Citadel coach Fred Jordan said, "It (never) ceases to amaze you." The 34 runs and 34 hits that Jordan's offense tallied are both records for a single game at The Citadel. The previous records for each were set on April 5, 1982 when the Bulldogs scored 27 runs on 32 hits against Davidson.

1. Developing resilient leaders for the future
Leadership and the development of leaders is not an exact science. Scholars do agree that people respond differently to challenging situations. The phenomenon of resilience, or what some refer to as grit, is a leadership characteristic often described as a new essential leadership skill. As scholar Rosabeth Moss Kanter observed in the Harvard Business Review, "The difference between winners and losers is how they handle losing." We all face moments in our operational strategies that fail. Researchers find that resilient people exhibit mastery over failure by taking the lessons learned from it to create a bridge for moving forward.

1. It's on his radar: Charleston professor sees new use for detection technology
Since it came to prominence in World War II, radar has been used in all sorts of new ways, but the idea has always been essentially the same. That basic concept is the same for meteorologists mapping weather systems, air-traffic controllers tracking planes and cops catching speeding cars. Radio waves go out, bounce off something and return a signal revealing its location and movement. For that same reason, radar isn't much good for finding objects that have been hidden - things that have been buried, obscured or smuggled to avoid detection. But a Citadel professor thinks it might be. Gregory Mazzaro, a professor of electrical engineering at the college, says his research shows that radio waves can be used to trace electronic devices, even if they've been hidden. Mazzaro was awarded a series of patents last fall for his work with so-called "harmonic radar," which he says can pick up the radio waves that devices like smartphones emit.

Japan's prime minister, Shinzo Abe, labelled the launches as "an extremely dangerous action." British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said: "We urge North Korea to stop its provocative actions, which threaten international peace and security. North Korea should instead re-engage with the international community and take credible, concrete steps to prioritize the well-being of its own people instead of the illegal pursuit of its nuclear and ballistic missile programs."

The 2016-2016 academic year is the 20th anniversary of women in the South Carolina Corps of cadets and 50th anniversary of African American cadets. "I think it's a great achievement, a great milestone not just for the Citadel for but everyone around the nation," Citadel cadet Devin Taylor said. "It's a great accomplishment that shows anyone can do this." "Diversity is everywhere," Citadel cadet Alexandria Guild said. "There are cadets in all different types of positions, rank-wise, academia, we're all over doing everything." The first to break the ground did not have the easiest transition. Charles Foster was the first African American cadet to join the Citadel in 1966. He graduated in 1970. Nancy Mace was the first female cadet to enter the Citadel in 1996 and graduate. She completed her degree in 2000. "I cannot thank enough the first African Americans to have confidence in us to come and break new ground. The women that first attended, too. They took on tough jobs," Citadel provost Connie Book said. Book is also the dean of the college.

1c. Cadets' parade to honor 20 Years of Women at The Citadel
In 1996, 20 years ago, four women made history when they joined the South Carolina Corps of Cadets. In large part, because of the courage and tenacity of these pioneers and those who followed, the college's culture evolved to become one where diversity is embraced and strategically supported. Coming out of Daniel Library, you see cadets walking to their next class, heading to their barracks, or grabbing a bite to eat from the mess hall. But Friday, you'll see them march to the beat of a different drum. "It's inspiring to be able to lead such a group of individuals," said Hunter Crawley. She's the first woman to hold the position of Regiment Drum Major. "The Regiment Drum Major is basically the leader on and off the field," she said. The Spartanburg native has dreams of attending medical school. "I hope to serve as physician in the Air Force," she said. She has plenty of support from women right there on campus. "The opportunities for women are endless everywhere," said LTC Pamela Barton.

1d. Citadel parade celebrates 20 years of women in the South Carolina Corps of Cadets
Alexandria Guild stood in her crisp uniform watching as her fellow cadets marched in tight ranks across The Citadel's Summerall Field. Parades like that one are held every Friday and are part of the routine at a campus steeped in tradition. This week's, however, marked a special occasion - 20 years since the first woman entered the South Carolina Corps of Cadets at the public military college. "I love the fact the women are all over the Corps," said Guild, who is a cadet major and regimental public affairs officer. "We're holding every kind of rank that you can imagine. This parade honoring us today means the world to me. I hope that women and young girls all over the world can see this and know that they can do anything they set their minds to."

3. Morris Robinson, the Unexpected Opera Star: 'A Lot of the Purists, They Don't Believe My Story'
Opera is often called the most irrational art form. Seen through that lens, bass singer Morris Robinson's unlikely career path makes wonderful sense. At a young age, from a family and culture that reveres singing, Robinson aspired to be a drummer instead. He ignored college music scholarships and conservatory programs for a free-ride to play football at a military college. Afterward, bypassing all thought of studying music at grad school, he worked for a Fortune 500 company in regional sales of data storage.

5a. Remembering Sam
Not quite a year ago thunderstorms shook the South Carolina Midlands. For those who mark calendars, they rumbled through April Fool's Day around 4 a.m. Later that morning my friend, Dianne, sent me a text. "We lost Sam last night." Rains had come to wash away a man's last earthly footprints...He wrote four novels and co-authored six anthologies. A 1985 Citadel graduate, he earned a BA in English there, later a Masters in English from James Madison University, dead giveaways of his ambition. He plunged into writing.

6. Citadel spring football: Raleigh Webb impresses in move to receiver
When a scout team receiver runs by an All-American cornerback, coaches take notice. When that player is listed at 6-2 and 195 pounds - and in person, Raleigh Webb appears even more imposing - an idea starts to take hold. "It dawns on you that maybe it's a good idea to try him at wide receiver," says Citadel coach Brent Thompson. Thus was born one of the most promising stories of spring football practice for the Bulldogs, slated to hold their spring game at 6 p.m. Friday at Johnson Hagood Stadium. Webb, who redshirted last season as The Citadel won a second straight Southern Conference championship, came to the Bulldogs as a safety, and was slated to play linebacker this spring.

6a. Whale Branch to South Beach: Inside Citadel star Dee Delaney's move to Miami
The journey from Whale Branch to South Beach is a long one, and in more ways than one. Four years ago, at age 18, Dee Delaney would not have been ready for that trip. "If I was 18 and going to Miami...man, I don't know," says Delaney, The Citadel's All-American cornerback from Whale Branch High School in Beaufort County. "I'd probably be more ready to party and cut up. "But now, I'm 22 and my mindset going to Miami is good. I know what I'm trying to accomplish going down there." Delaney announced less than two weeks ago that he would transfer from The Citadel to the University of Miami for his final college football season. A 6-1, 193-pounder who is considered an NFL prospect, Delaney will be eligible to play for the Hurricanes in 2017 as a graduate-student transfer.

2. Socialism: Marking a Century of Death and Destruction
In August of 1993 I was in invited to participate in a conference in Vilnius, Lithuania on "Liberty and Private Business." This was less than two years after the formal disappearance of the Soviet Union as a political entity on the map of the world. During our time there my wife and I were offered the opportunity to be given a tour of the building that had served as the headquarters of the local KGB, the infamous Soviet secret police. Our guide was a man who had been a prisoner in its walls in the late 1950s. The most nightmarishly part of the tour was the basement containing the prison cells and the interrogation rooms.

South Carolina catcher Chris Cullen and his teammates took each trip to the plate Tuesday against The Citadel with a sense of urgency. Off an emotional series loss to Clemson, they made sure there were no midweek doldrums that caught them earlier in the season. Instead, the Gamecocks teed off on the Bulldogs. "We didn't want to miss pitches early in the count that we might not get again," Cullen said. "Our ability to swing early in the count, see those pitches up, was huge."

The Gamecocks (8-5) blasted three homers on Tuesday night in a 12-5 win against The Citadel, taking out any lingering frustration left from a weekend series loss to their in-state rival. "It's definitely encouraging," catcher Chris Cullen said. "We came off an emotional weekend, I would say. It was good to see everyone go up to the plate with a sense of urgency and aggressiveness. I think that mindset put us over the top and allowed us to get some base hits and put some runs across the plate."

1. Defending Sea Grant
Amid report White House wants to kill program based at 33 universities, defenders note many of its projects relate directly to local business needs... That kind of key assistance to local businesses could be imperiled by cuts to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration sought by the Trump administration. According to a budget memo obtained by The Washington Post, the White House is proposing to cut the budget of NOAA by 17 percent. Among the specified cuts in that document, the administration proposed eliminating the entire budget of the $73 million Sea Grant program - a network of 33 college and university programs that tackle conservation and research programs, including the work of Parker and other extension agents with the Maryland oyster harvesting...State-level Sea Grant directors and their partners in academe and the business world say the work funded by the program is geared toward local environmental problems as well as industry needs - all the while producing good science. John Weinstein, interim dean of the School of Science and Mathematics at The Citadel, said funding he and collaborators at Clemson University have received through Sea Grant has led to 12 presentations at national scientific conferences, two peer-reviewed publications and several community-based lectures to raise awareness of microplastic pollution.

1. A Corps Day Tale
Corps Day is The Citadel family's celebration of our collective history, an opportunity to reflect upon the heritage of our school and honor the accomplishments of our graduates. I recently joined the staff at The Citadel, 25 years after my own graduation. Not a day goes by where I'm not reminded of our history and the bond all Citadel graduates share. Recently, I played a small part in a family's 77-year experience with The Citadel, a story connecting several generations. In 2009, I came across photographs my Grandfather gave me from his time a surgeon in World War II. He served with the 101st Airborne at Bastogne, and spent the balance of the war supporting the advance into Germany. Of his many sobering experiences, one concerned the liberation of a Prisoner of War camp the Germans previously evacuated. On a concrete wall, many of the now-departed POWs scratched their names and other information in case they ultimately went missing. This was a particularly grim find, as no one knew the fate of these men.

They bought in from day one. They've been fun to coach. We'll use this as a learning experience and come back next year."

The Spartans countered by working inside, scoring 40 points in the paint and compiling 22 assists on their 30 field goals overall.

3. Former Citadel star Tyler Renew trains for the NFL
Tyler Renew was the workhouse in The Citadel’s backfield last season. The Columbia native carried the ball 251 times. Quarterback Dominique Allen was second on the team in rushing attempts, with 141. Renew has the motor of a Chevy and the moxie of a Ford but it’s a good thing he’s built like a Dodge (or… like a rock). Renew is best known for helping lead The Citadel to back-to-back conference championships, rushing for 285 yards against Samford- one yard shy of the school record, or scoring two touchdowns in an upset win over South Carolina in the stadium where he used to sell peanuts. “Seeing where the program went from when we first got here to how it ended was beyond anything I could have ever imagined,” said Renew, who will graduate from The Citadel in May.

4. For Citadel basketball, a text and a turnaround
It was late last Wednesday night when Duggar Baucom's cell phone buzzed with an incoming text. Baucom's Citadel basketball team had turned in a first-half effort against Western Carolina that night that he called "nonsense," falling behind by 20 points to a team the Bulldogs were tied for last place with in the Southern Conference. "Coach, I know you are mad, and I'm mad too," the text said, according to Baucom. "But I promise, that will never happen again."

2. Pendleton named to Summerall Guards
Earning the title Summerall Guard is one of the highest honors that can be achieved by a member of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets at The Citadel. Each winter, cadets who are juniors endure weeks of rigorous physical training and drilling in an attempt to be named a member of the famous platoon for their senior year. Consisting of 61 members, all of the Summerall Guards were chosen for their physical stamina and drill proficiency. The platoon’s purpose is to exemplify, through a unique series of movements based on the old German close-order drill, the exactness and thoroughness with which a cadet is trained. The drill, which has never been written down, is performed to a silent count. Each year’s platoon takes responsibility for teaching the precise drill to the upcoming unit.

3. Letter: Citadel graduates
I am not a Citadel graduate, but I have many friends who are and have proven successful in various fields. The speaker at our men’s breakfast Feb. 17 was a Citadel graduate who admitted he was not a great student. He graduated with no stripes or honors. Over the years this non-motivated Citadel graduate became a two-star general. He gave a great testimony of how God used him in combat and as a witness in retirement.

3. Driesell, 744 NCAA wins short of his dad, is loving life
Chuck Driesell looked at his watch. It was Friday morning, and that night, the Maret School, where he has been the coach for the past two seasons, was playing Georgetown Day in the first round of the Mid-Atlantic Conference tournament. But that wasn't why he was keeping an eye on the time...Driesell's path has been long and winding. He now coaches a 23-3 high school boys' basketball team — but also teaches kindergartners and third-graders, coaches middle school teams and is an assistant coach for the high school golf team. That's a long way from being a Division I head coach or an assistant at Georgetown or Maryland — jobs Driesell has held in the past. His record in five seasons as the head coach at The Citadel was 42-113, which leaves him just 744 wins shy of his famous father, Lefty.
