CHARLESTON, S.C., May 7.--The 3,000th female will graduate from The Citadel this week.
The distinction will go to Sandy Glover when she walks across the platform in graduation ceremonies for The Citadel College of Graduate and Professional Studies on Wednesday evening (May 8th).
Approximately 40 men and women will be presented undergraduate degrees and 120 will receive graduate degrees during the ceremony in Summerall Chapel that will begin at 8 p.m.
Women have earned undergraduate and graduate degrees from the College of Graduate and Professional Studies since it began as the Evening College in 1966. In fact, women enrolled in the CGPS outnumber the men enrolled in the Corps of Cadets.
Ms. Glover will be awarded a Specialist in School Psychology Degree. She will also be presented the Aline M. Mahan Award on Wednesday evening for her outstanding record of accomplishment. The Charleston resident entered the program of school psychology at The Citadel during the Summer of 1993. With the exception of two B-pluses, she maintained straight A's while carrying a full-time academic load and working as a departmental graduate assistant at The Citadel.
While a student, Ms. Glover became very interested in the intellectual development of infants and children, and she has presented her research at
state-, regional- and national-level conventions of the American Psychological
Association. She has been accepted into the doctoral program in school
psychology at the University of South Carolina.
