Celebrating Women's History Month at The Citadel
Welcome to The Citadel’s Women’s History Month, 2014 – Honoring Women Alumni
I am pleased to offer my congratulations to The Citadel alumni who are being honored this year as part of The Citadel’s 2014 Women’s History Month program. Each woman was selected because her accomplishments exemplify the characteristics of an outstanding Citadel alumnus. These women are role models for all of our students as they make the world a better place. We are very proud that they represent our school as leaders in their professions and communities.
The presentation of notable women alumni is meant to recognize and applaud their efforts as leaders and contributors to the advancement of our society, in the military, science, law, business, and in all segments of American life. The Citadel community, our students, faculty, staff, administration, alumni, contributors, visitors, and fans can grow in our awareness that that the contributions of women are part of what makes our school great. As reflected by the Core Values of The Citadel, it is our duty to honor and respect the women who will be presented over the next 31 days.
Each day during the month of March, a female alumnus who was selected by a panel of Citadel representatives, will be featured on our school’s website. We invite you to get to know a leader who excels in her field by checking www.Citadel.edu each day in March. We hope you experience some surprises, learn something new, and deepen your appreciation of the leadership and contributions of women to The Citadel, South Carolina and the United States.
