4. Jane Davis retires after 49 years

Heading off to Columbia College for an education degree is what was expected of "good little Methodist girls" in the late 1960s. And that is exactly what retiring Mount Pleasant Academy (MPA) principal Jane Davis did. It was all thanks to her Latin teacher that she decided early on to go into education. That decision led to a 49-year career in education. "She was just so good," Davis said. "She made everyone feel good and gave them the confidence to achieve." ...She had already earned her Masters in Elementary Education so off she went to The Citadel for a Masters in Administration.

5. Sandler's 73, nabs golf tournament lead

It’s been a long time, five years to be precise, since Lori Horan didn’t finish a round of the St. Joseph County Women’s Metro Golf tournament leading the field. Yet, after round one of the 90th edition of the tournament, the 20-time champion is looking up. Recent Penn High School graduate Andi Sandler shot a 1-over-par, 73 Wednesday at Morris Park Country Club to take a four-shot lead into Saturday’s second round, scheduled for Blackthorn. Horan shot a 77 and didn’t record a birdie. “Morris Park is in great shape and it’s a short course,” said Sandler, who will join the golf program at The Citadel next month. “I wanted to hit it down the middle, get it on the green and putt out. I did that, for the most part.”

5. Missed Opportunities – Four Battles That Might Have Ended the U.S. Civil War Long Before 1865

What if the South had marched on Washington D.C. in 1861 after the First Battle of Bull Run? Suppose General George McClellan had been bolder during the 1862 Peninsula Campaign. Picture General George Meade pursuing and destroying Robert E. Lee’s army once and for all after Gettysburg. Could any of these scenarios have led to an early conclusion to the U.S. Civil War?

There are far more Austrian and Austrian-friendly thinkers in academia, business, and the financial industry than ever before. Richard attended the famous South Royalton conference, so he knows just how far we've come. But are Austrians making real progress against the dominant neo-Keynesian orthodoxy? Are we growing on a per-capita basis? And what would Hayek, Rothbard, and Margit von Mises—all of whom Dr. Ebeling knew and spent time with—think of Austrian economics today?

Not all the lessons you learn in life are gleamed from a book or, come from within the walls of the classroom. Some must come the hard way. Even better are those which you learn from and can pass along to others.When Will Abbott announced his commitment and then signed his national Letter of Intent with The Citadel in 2015, the then-Camden High senior seemed to have the world at his fingertips or, at least, on his strong right pitching arm. In his first season with the Bulldogs, Abbott made a quick impression and was rewarded for his effort by being named as the team’s regular Saturday pitcher, following J.P.

Ohio State, the football-mad university of more than 60,000 students, could hardly be more different from Williams College, the prestigious liberal arts school in the Berkshires, or Loyola University Maryland, a Catholic college in Baltimore. But this summer, all of their incoming students received the same reading assignment: “Just Mercy,” a memoir by the lawyer Bryan Stevenson of his work defending the poor and the forsaken, and a call for criminal justice reform. At least 70 colleges over the past three years have asked their first-year students to read the book, making it one of the most popular summer reading picks for American colleges...Some colleges tailor their selections to their audiences. For several years, the Citadel, a military college in South Carolina, has assigned Aaron Sorkin’s 1989 play, “A Few Good Men,” about a hazing death and cover-up in the Marines, which was adapted into a 1992 film.
