I visited The Citadel with a senior high school group from Virginia. We had the honor and privilege to meet with Pat Conroy who spoke to us about his time at the college and his writing of "The Lords of Discipline". For a lover of Mr. Conroy's writing, it was an opportunity of a lifetime. For the students who have been introduced to him, they will look back one day and appreciate the significance of this meeting with one of the best writers of our times. The Citadel staff was very accommodating and I applaud them for making such a day happen.
