CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Gov. Henry McMaster is set to award the outgoing Citadel president with one of the state's biggest awards.
Lt. Gen. John Rosa will be given The Order of the Palmetto Saturday as part of the school's 175th-anniversary celebration which includes cadets marching to Marion Square on Saturday afternoon.
Rosa is retiring as Citadel president on June 1 after he was named to the post in 2006. The Citadel has narrowed its list of candidates for the next president earlier in March.
