Lindsay Jackson

CGC ’05

Lindsay Jackson I am originally from Lexington, South Carolina and received my M.Ed. from The Citadel in physical education, health exercise and sport science. Presently, I am employed as a full-time adjunct instructor in the Department of Health, Exercise and Sport Science (HESS) at The Citadel, and I have been in that position since 2006. I reside on John’s Island with my husband, Jason, and our two sons, Griffith (7) and David (5).

What about your time at The Citadel had the most positive impact on your career or life?
I believe my time with the female cadets has had a positive impact on my life. Each day I am inspired by their ability to bond together as women and to be very supportive and motivating of one another. It gives me a positive outlook for the future of women in leadership positions (because many will come from The Citadel).Lindsay-Jackson-2

Why should young women consider attending The Citadel?
Many realize that The Citadel is not for everyone, man or woman. It takes a special young woman to attend the Citadel. A young woman should consider The Citadel if she is interested in a rewarding challenge and becoming a person who people look up to with admiration. She must realize that it will be hard work, but through her determination she will accomplish whatever she aspires to achieve.
