6 from Beaufort get Citadel ring
More than 550 cadets, active duty and veteran students, including six from Beaufort, now proudly wear The Citadel class ring.
The Class of 2022 marched across Summerall Field, directly into Summerall Chapel, where the rings were presented on Friday, Oct. 1.
Beaufort cadets who received their rings include Joshua Carroll, Ryan Henrickson, Kyle Davis, Joshua Desmore, Louis Walker and Cody Spencer.
“The presentation of the rings represents our commitment to The Citadel and our accomplishments as a class,” said Cadet Kathryn Christmas, Regimental Commander of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets. “The Class of 2022 has been waiting patiently for this day. We will wear them proudly.”
One of the very first acts the cadets performed after receiving their rings was to salute The Citadel War Memorial – marching by in rows of four – as they left the Chapel.
After, the cadets sprinted back to their barracks before beginning their first weekend with a Band of Gold on their hands.
