Gov. Nikki Haley will be inaugurated for her second and final term at 11 a.m. on January 14. Members of the S.C. Corps of Cadets have again been honored with the request of assisting with several elements of the inauguration.
At Haley’s second swearing-in ceremony, The Citadel’s Color Guard will open by presenting the flags and cadets will serve as ushers for guests. Additionally, a member of The Citadel’s world-famous Pipes Band will lead the processional and recessional for the morning prayer service at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral to be held at 9 a.m. before the Inaugural Ceremony.

Cadets have been present at the inauguration ceremonies and events for many of the state’s governors, going back for more than 100 years. Examples include Governor James Francis Byrnes in 1951, Governor Ernest F. Hollings in 1959, and John Carl West in 1971.
