Three cadet companies receive four awards

          Delta Company, Palmetto Battery and Romeo Company were recently honored for outstanding performance by cadets in academic, military training and student retention.         

Delta Company Commander Cadet Capt. David Barrett, Palmetto Battery Academic Officer Second Lt. Eric Sulser and Romeo Company Commander Cadet Capt. Russell Frierson accepted awards for their respective companies during the Sept. 26 dress military parade at The Citadel

           Palmetto Battery walked away with two awards - the Milton A. Pearlstine Award and the Charles P. Summerall Cup.

          The Summerall Cup is donated by the European Citadel Association and is awarded annually to the cadet company with the best academic achievement. Companies are rated on average grade point ratio for each semester and on whether the GPR has increased or decreased between first
and second semester.
The Pearlstine award is presented annually by
the Citadel Alumni Association to the cadet company with the highest freshman class grade point ratio for the previous school year.

          Delta Company received the President's Cup, which was established by former Citadel President Hugh Harris in 1967. It is presented annually to the cadet company with the highest combined score in academic achievement, military performance, extracurricular participation, fourth-class retention, and with the fewest disciplinary cases during the previous academic year.

          The Murray D. Bonnoitt Award was presented to Romeo Copmany. It is given annually in honor of Murray D. Bonnoitt, Class of 1962 and past Citadel Alumni Association president. The award recognizes the cadet company with the highest freshman class retention rate for the previous school year,
