Leadership Day 2014

On Wednesday, October 22nd, Citadel cadets marked Leadership Day, which is a day set aside by Citadel administration to promote leadership development in cadets at all levels of the leadership development model: prepare, serve, lead, command. Instead of their regularly scheduled classes, cadets participated in community service (Krause Center service teams and SHARE program), disaster preparedness training by American Red Cross, Junior Ethics Enrichment Experience (JEEE), or Senior Leadership Integration Seminar (SLIS).

Among the Leadership Day cadet participants, 1,281 cadets served on the Krause Center Service Teams, which directly served Charleston area nonprofits, and the SHARE heroism themed outreach in local Title I schools. The Krause Center Service Teams were coordinated by AmeriCorps VISTA and service learning graduate assistants.
