Statement from chairman of BOV
On behalf of The Citadel Board of Visitors, Lt. Gen. John Rosa and his staff are uniquely qualified to lead our college as action is taken to impress upon our cadets that actions have consequences. As the exceptional, visionary leader of our college, he has led us to the #1 Public College in the South rating, not once, but the last five years in a row. His untiring expansion of our leadership program led to cadet leadership first reporting the unfortunate actions of seven first-year cadets earlier this week. Our community has seen a proper, rapid response on behalf of our leadership and Corps of Cadets, and can rest assured future actions taken will include a thorough investigation, due process, and action to instill in every cadet the respect every citizen deserves.
Lt. Gen. John B. Sams, Jr., USAF, (Ret.)
Chairman, Citadel Board of Visitors
