How did attending The Citadel help position you for success?
Attending The Citadel taught me the value of teamwork and leadership. As cadets, we were accountable for our actions as well as the actions of our team. The value of teamwork has stuck with me in everything I have done. At The Citadel, I learned to be a part of something larger than myself. Finally, I learned that if you want to lead, you must first learn how to follow.
