Cadets break another giving record

Citadel cadets contributed a record $11,876 to this year's United Way campaign, breaking the 2004 record by nearly $1,000.

"Yet again, we have a reason to be proud of our efforts as a Corps of Cadets," said Regimental Human Affairs Officer Cadet Maj. Harris Ligon." We were named the No. 1 contributor to the United Way and The American Red Cross among colleges across the Lowcountry last year. Now, we have superseded our own record again."

To foster giving, cadets were told that the company in each battalion that had the most upper class participation, based on the percentage of contributors, would be excused from one closed weekend Saturday Morning Inspection (SMI) during the first semester. Knobs in the company contributing the most would receive extended leave on a Saturday night. This year's winners are:
