Charleston, South Carolina -- Friday, October 12, 2018
Allen and Jen Marfitt walk with Regimental Commander Sarah Zorn during the Ring Ceremony, an important achievement for graduating cadets. The Marfitt family, who took in Zorn at age 16 following the death of her mother, were on campus for Parents Weekend.
Zorn, who will have a five-year commitment to the Army when she graduates in May, is a Business Administration major.
In May, Cadet Col. Sarah Zorn became the Regimental Commander at the Citadel, the military college of South Carolina. Zorn is the first woman to hold the position of top cadet at the 175-year-old institution, which, up until 1995, didn't allow women to enroll.
