Citadel Class of 2022 Rings: Two local cadets – Brenton Carnes of Lancaster and Joshua Coats of Kershaw – received their Citadel Class Rings during an award ceremony on October 1 at the Charleston Military College Chapel.
“The handover of the rings represents our commitment to the Citadel and our achievements as a class,” said Cadet Kathryn Christmas, regimental commander of the SC Corps of Cadets. “The class of 2022 has been patiently waiting for this day. We will wear them proudly. “
After receiving their rings, the cadets greeted the Citadel War Memorial – they marched past in rows of four – as they left the chapel. Then they sprinted back to their barracks before starting their first weekend with a Band of Gold on their hands.
“The presentation of rings is something we have all dreamed of as buttons since our early days. Then it seemed to take forever – but here we are to join the brotherhood and sisterhood of those who wear the ring, ”said Cadet Grayson Gasque, deputy regimental commander. “For Class ’22, our rings symbolize the culmination of our efforts here at the Citadel and of those who have helped us. From that day on we have the privilege and responsibility to wear the gold ribbon. “
