    This young man in #2 son's Cadet Company Commander - a really fine young man.



    What it takes to make the list and how The Citadel helps
    The order-of-merit list is compiled based on several criteria including grade point average, performance on the Army Physical Fitness Test, college athletic participation, and performance during college ROTC training and Advanced Camp at Fort Knox, Kentucky, according to the command website.

    Robert Weigand, who graduated from The Citadel in 2018 with a degree in civil engineering, was #8 on the list announced in Nov. 2017.

    “For me, it is the significance of the relationships here at The Citadel that help our cadets succeed,” said Wilder. “My classmates, cadet peers, professors, the TAC officers who help train us, and the officers and non-commissioned officers in the Army ROTC department are the reason I’ve made it to my senior year, and the reason I strive to better myself so that I can serve my country as effectively as possible.”
