‪As a young man I applied to be a Rhodes Scholar twice and was turned down both times. Just think how different my life would have been if I'd been accepted. ‬I'm sure I never would have become an astronaut much less walked on the moon. Sometimes your greatest disappointments or failures lead to your greatest success. So just remember, failure is always an option. #NoDreamIsTooHigh

Congratulations to the Honors Program Class of 2018!


Matthew Miller (Honors Program class of 2019), who is currently interning in Washington, D.C., was informed earlier this month that he had been selected as a Truman Scholar with a surprise phone call from Lt. Gen. Rosa!

The Truman Scholarship is the country’s most prestigious scholarship for aspiring public service leaders. Matthew was selected as one of 59 Truman Scholars from a group of 756 applicants at 312 colleges and universities. He is The Citadel’s fifth Truman Scholar since the program was established by the Harry S. Truman Memorial Scholarship Act in 1975.

Matthew, a champion for sustainability initiatives both on- and off-campus, has an extensive record of service and leadership in various campus efforts to promote stewardship of natural resources: he is the founder of the Citadel Sustainability Committee (which works to improve recycling programs on campus) and a leader on the Sustainability Project (a cadet-run aeroponic container farming program). He has also served in the Corps as a squad corporal and will be Victor Company’s honor representative and academic officer for fall 2018.

Awards and scholarships Matthew has received as a cadet include the Citadel Scholarship, the Dr.Mohr/Huge Foundation Scholarship, and the Star of the West International Summer Study Scholarship. Matthew has received gold stars for every semester enrolled at The Citadel.
Congratulations, Matthew!
