Brady named to top cadet leadership position at The Citadel

CHARLESTON, S.C. — Aidan Brady, of Clemmons, will be one of the cadets entrusted to lead the South Carolina Corps of Cadets during the 2020-21 academic year.

The campus may be closed, and the corps may be spread across the country — but that doesn’t stop The Citadel’s mission.

Each year, around Corps Day/Recognition Day weekend, The Office of the Commandant announces the next group of cadets who will lead the corps for the upcoming year.

The Citadel’s mission to educate and develop cadets into principled leaders is the driving force behind the integral military system at the college, which is in operation at all times when school is in session, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
