Beaufort’s Rohrer named to top cadet leadership position

Christopher Rohrer of Beaufort will be one of the top leaders in the South Carolina Corps of Cadets during the 2022-23 academic year at The Citadel.

Next year, Rohrer will serve as the Band Company Commander. After a series of rank board engagements, performance reviews and interviews, the newest cadet leaders for The South Carolina Corps of Cadets are now poised to take over when the Class of 2022 graduates as part of the college’s Long Gray Line.

The Citadel’s tradition of developing principled leaders through a 24/7 military structure on campus continues, positioning cadets to run the Corps by earning increasing rank throughout their time on campus. Rank holders accumulate real leadership experience, making decisions that contribute directly to the academic, physical fitness, military training and overall success of the Corps.

The Citadel Commandant of Cadets, Col. Thomas Gordon, USMC (Ret.), ’91, announced the new cadet leadership for the 2022-2023 school year during a March 8 gathering in Jenkins Hall.

“This will be the most consequential thing you have done up to this point in your lives,” Gordon said. “I will tell you, without a bit of hyperbole, that my year as a company commander in the Corps of Cadets was the most impactful for me as a leader for the first five years of my Marine Corps career. This is your opportunity to sharpen and refine your leadership skills.”

The regimental staff will lead approximately 80 cadet officers in the command of the Corps’ five battalions and 21 companies during the next academic year, with positions ranging from battalion sergeant majors to company first sergeants.
