Thank you for your support of The Citadel!

Dear Class of 1960,

Education continues as the significant foundation for our nation adding immeasurably to our growth and success in business and military.  Our class accepted this goal by establishing and financially supporting the Class of 1960 Citadel Leadership Scholarship in December 2010.  Since that date, we have awarded over $53,000 to thirteen cadets majoring in mechanical engineering, civil engineering, and history among many others.  Our contributions of over $200,000 created this enduring opportunity and will last forever!

Following are notes from three of the cadets we supported and/or continue to support:

Dear BG and Mrs. Jimmy Dishner,

Thank you for generously supporting my Citadel experience with the Class of 1960 Leadership Scholarship.  I am a Civil Engineering major from Nashville, GA with hopes of serving as an Army Officer.  Your kind-hearted donation has given me the chance to pursue my aspirations.  Thank you again for your support.

Dear BG  and Mrs. Dishner,

I would like to thank you two one last time for the Class of 1960 Citadel Leadership Scholarship.  If it was not for this scholarship, my journey at The Citadel would have halted 1st semester Knob year.  I am honored to be fortunate enough to receive this scholarship my entire time at The Citadel.  Hopefully, sometime in the near future, I will be able to thank you two in person for helping me become an alumni of this wonderful institution.
Thanks again,
Class of 2015 Cadet

Dear BG  and Mrs. Dishner,
I want to thank you both very much for selecting me for this scholarship.  Not only will it help pay for my tuition, it will also help me in my pursuit of a career in the Army.  I am a 3-year Army contract majoring in History and minoring in Chinese.  I am hoping to enter the Army as a Military Intelligence Officer, where I further hope to make a career out of the Army.  Your donation puts me one step closer to reaching this goal.  Thank you.
Sincerely and Respectfully,
Cadet from Class of 2019

Well Done!!
