Gala invitation

For next year
One potential new AP (Suzi)
need Digital Electronics partner too – will be adding this class

Goal- Multi day job shadows (would need to be half days in the morning) for the EDD Capstone course. There would be a total of 54 students in this class. Not all will be able to participate

Would like to build a little house as Civil Eng project. Would like a residential builder AP
Maybe get a site visit of a tiny house as field trip.
would like students to be able to do community service at Habitit

We discussed need to have Citadel recruit students – in the past Citadel has seemed uninterested in helping with this. Robin reaching out to Duvall Herlocker – business advisor.
For September Advisory Board meeting: plan for Discover Citadel days for Engineering students.

Somehow, I missed that there was a Summerville STEM Advisory Board meeting, I do apologize. Was pulled into a meeting and missed the Gala. So sorry! However, on a brighter note, I am a member of the Boeing Citadel Alumni group and think I could help with getting connected with the Citadel. We have alumni who do speed networking, speak to groups on the value of a Citadel education and it’s impact on their career. We also give an annual scholarship to a student in SC who will be attending the Citadel.

Hi Cindy, Thanks for your note. We look forward to meeting you and you have not missed the Gala – it is on May 12. We would love to work with the Citadel Alumni group – thanks for the offer – we can incorporate that into next year’s work. If you can make the Gala I would love to introduce you to the Summerville STEM teachers and administrators! 

Thanks! Robin Willis
